Sentence stays

A SERVING prisoner's appeal against his sentence was dismissed by the High Court in Labasa yesterday. Sunia Mateiwai, who represented himself, appeared before Judge Justice Daniel Goundar. Mateiwai was convicted and sentenced to five years after the court found him guilty of possessing illicit drugs weighing about 6.7 kilograms. Justice Goundar said the sentence was appropriate.
