SENTENCE


Dodin, J

 

[1]               I Have taken due consideration of the matters raised in mitigation.

[2]               The convict is 33 years old he is gainfully employed and he has no dependant.

[3]               He has served a very short time on remand but since 2010 he has been out on bail and he has not   

                    committed any similar offence so i do not see a need to send him to prison at his age.

[4]               I will impose a fine of Rs 15,000, it can be paid by instalment but it must be paid within 6 months of

                    today. 

[5]               You can appeal against the sentence within 30 working days.

 

Signed, dated and delivered at Ile du Port on the 16th March 2016
