The Court of Appeal has today refused to grant leave to appeal against sentences for various offences including armed robbery, false imprisonment, burglary, handling stolen goods and offending while on parole.

In rejecting the applicant’s applications for leave to appeal, the court said these sentences imposed on the applicant raised what appeared to be a serious question of inadequate sentencing for armed robbery.
