Randy Blythe update7th February 2013
Due to one of the key witnesses falling ill, the trial will be postponed until March 4th. A witness is on the stand today, following this, Randy is set to return to the U.S. with his legal team.
“I have read a few news reports of the progress of my case, and trust me — many things are incorrect,” said the singer via Instagram earlier. “But this is the Internet, and, of course, things are half-baked anyway. Keep in mind that translation is difficult, and many things can be lost, for Czech is a VERY DIFFICULT language. So wait and see, as I am. It is all I can do, except be honest and fight for my freedom in my own way."
“I also have heard of some people (not on here) talking smack about the Czech Republic, saying, ‘Fuck the Czech Republic,’ etc. This [is] not how it should be. This is a very sad case, not something to rage at people you do not know over."
“I am not angry with the Czechs at all. A fan of my band is dead — what do I have to be angry about? I am an INNOCENT man, but I am also a very sad man right now. To not be sad in this instance would be inhuman. But mad at the Czech people? Why would I be mad at them?"
“Here, look at this picture — a mother watches her baby. The child reaches out for something new, laughing and chasing a pretty picture in the air. It is the same here as everywhere else. Do you see?!?!?"
“Life is beautiful."
“I hope to see y’all soon.”
