Justice for Yousef Makki

#justice for yousef
Yousef Makki is my brother & on the 2nd march 2019 he was stabbed to death on the streets of hale barns a leafy rich suburb in cheshire.
Yousef died of one stab wound straight into his heart. Yousef was from a council estate & worked hard to keep his place at a prestige grammar school for 7 years. On 1st march he went to stay over at his friends house in hale barns, this friend shown him a knife thursday & saturday he died with the same knife.
The boy in question had a bad reputation carried knives for over 2 years, wasn't in a school that would accept him. The two boys were from rich families & backgrounds& could afford the best legal teams in town.
We then had to go through a 4 week trial, pathology report shown he did the stabbing with intent went front to back and with force. Cctv shown both friends at the scene when the stabbing happened even though the friend denies seeing or hearing anything
The boy admitted he killed yousef even though he claimed self defence, they claimed yousef also held a knife even though no DNA evidence shows that he did. Videos were shown of this boy playing with knives on his social media accounts & even a few videos of him pretending to stab people.
At the end of trial & within just 6 hours the jury came back with not guilty charges not even a guilty charge for manslaughter.
They both got 4 months each for carrying a knife and the killer got 12 months for lying to police
We cannot believe he admitted his actions& he received an acquittal. His behaviour post verdicts have also been worrying & we need to take a stand to make sure something like this never happens again
Money will be used to progress the case legally and fund legal representation

Thank You
