Jurors In Bobby Messet Murder Trial Told Prosecution’s Case Against Accused Is Circumstantial

Gerard Cervi, from East Wall in Dublin city, has also pleaded NOT guilty to the attempted murder of two other men, including boxing trainer Pete Taylor.

Bobby Messett was shot dead when a gunman opened fire inside Bray Boxing Club just before 7am on June 5th 2018.

Another gym goer called Ian Britton and the man leading the training session that morning, boxing coach, Pete Taylor, were also injured, in the shooting but survived.

Outlining the State’s circumstantial case against Gerard Cervi today, the prosecuting barrister, Paul Murray, described a grey VW polo as being relevant and he claimed a link can be made between it and the accused.

He also referenced a witness who saw a van and a man on a bike in Cabinteely just over an hour after the shooting.

The prosecution believes Mr Cervi was the man in the van and the man on the bike, and that he was also the man who carried out the fatal shooting.
