Lamb Of God Frontman’s Czech Attorney Speaks On Randy Blythe’s Case In New Interview
Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe‘s Czech attorney, Martin Radvan, recently took part in an interview with Radio Prague. The interview shed some light on Blythe‘s situation, which currently remains the same since the last update. The following exchange took place with Radvan:
“We are now waiting for his release because the band has already collected the additional 200,000 dollars, and only due to long travel time between the Prague Municipal Court and the court for Prague 8, we are still waiting. Otherwise, he should have already been released.”
What will happen when Mr Blythe is released? Will he have to stay in the Czech Republic or will he be allowed to leave the country?
“Everything indicates that he will be allowed to travel home. But he will have to come back either for further investigation or the trial, and that’s what he wants to do. As a world-renowned artist, in a specific genre of music of course, he cannot afford to simply disappear. This is a wrong assumption by the Czech police and the Prague municipal prosecutor who still believe there is a possibility he will disappear and never show up again.
But there would be posters with his picture all around the world, and if he wants to continue performing, he will have to return. And he wants to return because he believes he is not guilty of anything he has been charged with.”
Some more insight into the case and how Blythe has been spending his time while being held in custody can be found in above-mentioned link. Blythe has spent nearly a month in custody on suspicions of manslaughter charges in relations to the fatal injuries suffered by a 19 year old fan at a 2010 show the band played in Prague, Czech Republic.
The fan repeatedly took to the stage and had numerous interactions with Blythe, most of which were captured on film.
