John's pursuit of justice for tragic Michaela admirable

Editor's Viewpoint

John McAreavey is determined to get justice for his former wife Michaela, who was murdered on their honeymoon almost six years ago. Two men accused of the killing were acquitted in 2012, but John believes the investigation was botched.

He has since remarried, but he can never forget those dreadful days in 2011 when he found Michaela strangled in their honeymoon hotel in Mauritius. While he - like Michaela's family - has had to get on with life, the desire to see those guilty of taking her life receive their just deserts remains.

The Michaela Foundation charity keeps her memory alive, but the lack of justice is a sore that cannot be eased.
