5: Rum… And Justice for All

We have an explanation of an ‘Irish goodbye’ to kick off this week’s episode. Jonatan tells the tale of capital punishment in Belarus- the story of “Black Realtors” Igor Gershankov and Semen Berezhnoy who were found guilty of six murders and preparation of another one, kidnapping and fraud.

Ana dives into a murder in Ireland- the case of Antra Ozolina, a 49 year old Latvian who was killed in her home.

Finally, we cover two bonus crimes and ask ‘Was justice served?’. As usual we round things off with a drink: this time it’s got rum, pear and spice.

Don’t forget to send us your stories and feedback: crimebythebar@gmail.com or @crimebythebar on twitter.
