“They had allowed this appeal in relation to sentence so now he has to taken back to the Supreme Court and given the new sentencing provisions relating to persons who have been convicted of murder then he will not be resentence. Whereas previously he was sentenced to a finite life sentence now he would be able to receive if the judge hears his matter is of such a view receive a fix term whether the fix term is fair or whether it be thirty years or twenty five years or whatever the case maybe. So that is the next stage of this process.”



“That will also involve mitigation hearing? Will that be allowed?”


Anthony Sylvestre

“Yes, it will also involve mitigation hearing process.”
