Trial completed - HUGE VICTORY!
The trial has been completed! In a huge victory, the perpetrator has received a severe punishment by Greek standards. This is the first time an animal abuser has received a sentence of this kind in the history of Greece!
He was sentenced for a misdemeanour crime for the brutal beatings, 9 months in jail without the possibility of parole, and ordered to pay 8500 Euros (500 Euros for every threat made to the neighbors, for the strays, 1000 Euros for each dog harmed, 2000 Euros for the death of Rigas).
