WHAT THEY SAID: To talk to The timesMaguire said: “Some people will believe me; some people won’t. But one thing I would say about Mykonos is that I have no regrets. I don’t worry about what the outcome will be. I don’t worry about anything that has to do with it because my conscience is so clear about what happened that night.

“The people who were there that night, there were nine of us, we all understand what happened and what happened.”
