Case #: 33 of 2019
Clodius Michel Vs. Commissioner of Police

The sentences of five years, as we indicated, are not unduly harsh. And while we as a court may have, had we heard and sentenced in this case, imposed a different sentence, the Court of Appeal does not interfere with the sentence simply on that basis. It must be satisfied that the sentence or sentences imposed were unduly severe, unduly harsh. That is not the case in the present appeal. In the circumstances, the court does not grant the leave to appeal out of time. This means that the convictions and sentences are affirmed.
