Two Polish truck drivers who denied murdering a man at the truck stop of the Amber filling station in Fermoy were found not guilty today.

The jury of eight men and four women took just over two hours to return with their unanimous verdicts at the Central Criminal Court sitting in Cork.

Tomasz Wasowicz, 45, and Marcin Skrzypezyk, 31, were both found not guilty of the murder of Ludovit Pasztor, 40, on February 21, 2017 at the Amber filling station at Carrrignagroghera, Fermoy, County Cork.

They were also found not guilty of manslaughter. There were tears of relief from both accused. The wife and a daughter of the deceased also wept in court as the not guilty verdicts were delivered.
