Good job also, to the authorities for reporting this, and showcasing that we have a system in place to review cases and retract punishments… But poor Mr. Arne Corneliussen, who “served more than half of his 10 week jail term?! and still kenna fined?! Serious injustice, (as TNP puts it) no? (I think the judicial system owes him 5 weeks+ of free beer as apology, but that’s just me)

Anyways, what do you think? As a people, are we as fast to apologise than we are to cast judgement?
