December 2023- Decision of the Criminal Court of Appeal no. 4732/2023 – Reduction of the sentence imposed in the first instance from eight years to five years and six months for the offences of robbery and dangerous bodily harm.

By its decision No. 4732/2023, the Criminal Court of Appeal ruled on the appeal filed by the defendant – my client – to set aside the original decision of the Criminal Court of First Instance, which had found him guilty of the offences of robbery and dangerous bodily harm and had sentenced him to eight (8) years’ imprisonment, consisting of the sentence of seven (7) years’ imprisonment imposed on him for the act of robbery, increased by one (1) year from the sentence of two (2) years’ imprisonment imposed on him for the act of dangerous bodily harm. The appellate court, although finding the defendant guilty, took into account the circumstances and manner of committing the act and decided to improve his position by sentencing him to a total of five years and six months imprisonment.
