Civic nightclub owner Maurizio Rao was acquitted in the ACT Supreme Court yesterday of the stabbing murder of a man outside the Cube nightclub in 2006.
Cheers and tears greeted the verdict, handed down by Justice Malcolm Gray to a packed Courtroom 1, with Mr Rao's supporters cheering and clapping when the judgment was delivered, and mobbing the 33-year-old club owner when he emerged from court.
Relatives of the dead man, Nato Seuala, were stunned into tearful silence.
In a 43-page judgment, Justice Gray, who heard the case without a jury, ruled that Mr Rao acted in self-defence when he stabbed Mr Seuala in the early hours of July 15, 2006.
The 23-year-old died of his wounds in the Canberra Hospital, three weeks after he and four friends brawled with Mr Rao and club bouncer Adam Street outside the gay nightspot.
In the course of the fight, Mr Seuala, a father of two, was stabbed in the abdomen and, fatally, in the head.
Mr Rao, of Kaleen, was charged with murder and inflicting grievous bodily harm and admitted stabbing the dead man in the abdomen after Mr Seuala and his friends allegedly attacked the two club workers, but denied striking the fatal blow, a claim that Justice Gray rejected.
Witness described a brutal fight, which erupted when the group was refused entry to the Petrie Plaza club just after 4.30am, with one bystander telling the court he believed Mr Rao would die from the beating he received.
The court heard that the five men had been drinking in various venues around Civic on the night of Mr Seuala's death.
The prosecution, led by David Buchanan QC, had argued that the five friends were relaxed and were moving on from the club after they were refused entry by Mr Street.
But Mr Buchanan alleged that Mr Rao had escalated the confrontation by making a racist remark to his colleague about the group, who were all of Pacific Island descent, as the men were walking away.
While Justice Gray accepted that Mr Rao had made racist comments about the men, he ruled that the dead man provoked the fight when he attacked the club owner with a sandbag.
"In the circumstances as I find them, I do not regard the accused as wanting to fight," Justice Gray wrote.
"The dominating aggression was all from the other side."
Leaving court, flanked by family and friends, Mr Rao declined to comment but his father told reporters that the family were relieved.
Mr Seuala's family and friends, who also declined to speak to the media, stood in silence in the foyer of the Supreme Court building looking shaken by the verdict.
The dead man's partner, who was given permission to follow the trial on closed circuit television, was not present in court to hear the verdict.
Mr Rao is still charged with the unlawful possession of a flick knife at the club on the night of Mr Seuala's death and of possession of a baton, allegedly found later by police in a search of his car.
