Former bouncer Duncan Deguara, 32, has been unanimously acquitted by a jury of causing the death of 28-year-old immigrant Suleiman Abubaker, from Darfur, when he pushed him out of Footloose club, causing him to slam into the ground.

Mr Deguara, who lives in Paola, was, however, found guilty of not having a licence to be a guard and was fined €500.

Mr Abubaker suffered a fractured skull and lung contusions when he was thrown out of the club in May 2009. He fell into a coma and died 11 days later.
