Press-release-59(The following is issued by the Palau Supreme Court for the benefit of the media and the public.)

            On November 17, 2013, the jury in the matter of Republic of Palau v. Zylden Yano returned a verdict after two full days of deliberation, thus concluding Palau’s second jury trial.  The defendant was found guilty on all five counts:  Attempted murder in the first degree; robbery; aggravated assault; assault and battery with a dangerous weapon; and grand larceny.  After the verdict was read, the trial court thanked the jury for diligently fulfilling their important civic obligation.

A jury system can only succeed when jurors embrace the serious responsibility to which they are charged and live up to their obligation as the ultimate decision makers in the case.  The trial court also commended Assistant Attorney General Joshua Kolsrud, representing the Republic, and William Ridpath, representing the defendant, for their fine work.

            The Court would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff for their superb job in this matter.  Palau’s second jury trial progressed efficiently.  Setting a new record, the jury was empanelled in under two hours.  The trial lasted five days, interrupted by typhoon Haiyan after the first day.  The jury heard testimony over three full days.  Sentencing in this matter shall be set after the trial court receives Probation’s presentence report.

frTrack3This will be our final posting. Due to the dire nature of the situation and the fact the weather has already begun to turn, we will be taking down Palau Wave’s antenna and going off-air/offline.

As soon as it is safe to do so, we will reconnect and give an update of our situation.

Thank you to everyone and please say a prayer for the Republic of Palau.
