The NSW Court of Criminal Appeal isn’t a friend of the law abiding citizen! Why would I say this? Read the following and then tell me what you think?
‘The former girlfriend of Sydney siege gunman Man Haron Monis has had her sentence for murdering his ex-wife reduced by nearly a decade.
Amirah Droudis, 41, repeatedly stabbed the mother of Monis’s two children in a Western Sydney apartment block in 2013 before dousing her in petrol and setting her alight.
She was sentenced in 2017 to 44 years in jail with a non-parole period of 33 years following a judge-alone trial which concluded that Monis planned the murder but wasn’t prepared to carry it out himself.
On Thursday, the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal quashed the original sentence and imposed one of 35 years with a non-parole period of 26 years.
Droudis’s earliest release date is now March 2041 – about six years sooner than what her original sentence dictated.’https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/state/nsw/2020/12/10/amirah-droudis-sentence/?utm_source=Adestra&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=News%20Alert%20-%2020201210
