Jock Palfreeman loses final appeal

Despite abundant and obvious evidence supporting his case, as expected, in Sofia, Bulgaria, 24-year-old Australian man Jock Palfreeman has lost his final appeal to the Supreme Court of Cassation against a 20-year prison sentence for ‘murder with hooliganism’. The next step in the legal process will likely be the European Court of Human Rights.

    Good I hope Palfreeman rots in jail, he has [sic] tarnishing the good name overseas of honest Aussies that conform to other countries [sic] civil and criminal laws. What ever spin you put on this Mr Slack Bastard […] [t]he fact still remains that Palfreeman was found guilty by a jury of peers from a [p]ro democratic [c]ountry.

    G’day Justin,

    A coupla things.

    1. Jock was not found guilty by a jury of his peers but a panel consisting of several foreign (Bulgarian) magistrates.
    2. I’m not sure what ‘pro democratic’ means, but Bulgaria does have periodic elections. Either way, this fact would seem to have little or no relevance to Jock’s case, or to his final appeal.

  3. Sam says:

    Foreign magistrates? It’s their country, Jock is the foreigner.

  4. @ndy says:

    Mate you’ve been banging on about Jock for several years now. Yr argument was poor to begin w and has not improved over time. I dunno what compels you to be ignorant and foolish, but in future save it for some other time and place.

  5. Rightguy says:

    Seems you have the poor arguement. Thats why hes in jail.
