Attorney-General Giorgos Savvides on Wednesday appealed the ‘manifestly inadequate’ 11-year prison sentence recently imposed on a man for sexually abusing two minors under the age of 13 in Limassol.
The accused was found guilty on 12 charges of sexual abuse of the two minors.
Limassol criminal court sentenced him to 11 years in jail, a decision that the AG considered “manifestly inadequate” based on the facts of the offences.
The AG appealed the decision, saying it did not reflect the overall conduct of the accused.
Last week, Limassol criminal court sentenced a 67-year-old man to 11 years in jail for sexually abusing his partner’s two children, aged 6 and 8, at his house in 2016. The court heard that the man forced them to witness each other’s sexual exploitation.
Throughout the trial, the man had been out on bail.
