The court heard that on the said date, Kirk wentÂ fishing at Canoe Bay and on his way out, gave a man whoÂ had been hunting a lift in his vehicle.
The police and Game WardensÂ testified that they had been observing the two men hunting for three hours and when they were finished and driving out, they stopped and searched the vehicle and found the animals.
Both men were arrested.
Kirk was represented by Martin George who made legal submissions that the State had not proven its case against his client.
Witnesses for the State included former superintendent Jeffrey George and Game Warden John Edwards among others.
The matter was prosecuted by attorneys from the DPPâ€™s office who travelled from Trinidad for the prosecution.
After considering the legalÂ submissions of the DPPâ€™s office and George, Murray dismissed the case against Kirk.
George said he now plans to prepare High Court proceedings to sue the State for damages and compensation for malicious prosecution of his client, who maintained his innocence, as he indicated that the 17 iguanas belonged to another person whom he had given a lift in his car.
