Dog killer sentencing postponed

Sentencing of a 64-year-old man found guilty of killing his dog by tying it to a car and dragging it through the streets of Limassol on Christmas day in 2013 has been postponed for March 4, the Animal Party said on Friday.

The postponement had been requested by the defence to give them time to prepare their mitigation arguments.

The hearing is scheduled for 9.30am.

Last week, the court found the man guilty of killing a dog, tying a dog to a moving vehicle, illegal use of a collar, negligence, assaulting police officers, and disobeying police orders.

The maximum penalty is a year in jail and/or a €2,500 fine.

The defendant had been arrested by police officers who were in pursuit after witnessing the horrific event of the Rottweiler being dragged behind a Land Rover.
