By Project (Towards rehabilitation and community integration for prisoners back into society with the concentration on female prisoners) funded by Drosos Foundation which Life Foundation offer its legal support to Prisoners.
On 13/12/2017, Legal unit of Life foundation could have gotten an acquittal sentence of two defendants who were indicted for a theft crime before Belbies Misdemeanour court of appeal in lawsuit No. 826 for the year 2015 Abu Hammad Misdemeanour court. The defence Lawyer has presented his pleading and asked for an acquittal sentence depending on: insufficient evidence, lack of public prosecution investigation – lack of material and non material side of theft crime) there is no evidence to incriminate the defendants (there is no witness, no Seizures and no red-handed) and because of implausibility of crime description and contradiction confession of the defendants. So The court judge defendants acquittal.
The above mentioned case has a criminal record “robberies” and because of that when a theft crime happen in his region, the police officer arrest him to cook him up the theft lawsuits.
So the society should understanding its great role in back those people to commit crimes again because of the difficulty of accepting them in society which leads to make them a centre of committing crimes and that won’t support the community safe which we want.
