Pedro’s cousin, Rafael Godinho, has released the following statement on behalf of the family after a guilty verdict was returned yesterday (Tuesday 17 October).
“Yesterday a degree of justice was done because the man responsible for brutally stabbing Pedro in a cowardly act of retaliation was convicted for his murder.
“Ezekiel Braithwaite shamelessly lied and denied guilt despite overwhelming facts that proved otherwise.
“Pedro should still be here with his family, his wife and children. He had his whole life ahead of him instead it was cruelly taken from him by a man who chose to carry a knife and use it.
“Our lives have been torn apart by what happened to Pedro and regardless of the sentence Braithwaite receives it will never be complete justice for Pedro.”
