?? As it's via ECHR if they win, then, as far as I understand things, they can then apply to the ICC for some individual criminal prosecutions???

Naturally, I exclude the Confederate States of Britain where 'change' is a dirty word, as is air quality, and now fire regulations; - rather like General Sir Cecil Hogmanay Melchett's opinion of the word 'crevice'

Well what a surprise , a couple off weeks ago ,a Court in Braga sent a arsonist to Jail for 7 years off which HE has to sever @ least 3.5.

Then comes the "rub" ,this is the third time this guy been caught & sentenced ,but the two previous sentences off 3.5 years where suspended ?????????

I think I could my head around that the first sentence could have been suspended , but hell's teeth not the 2nd one.

If the PT System is at all serious about attempting to stop these criminal acts ,that cause massive damage & sometimes the loss off life , then send these bat -hit crazy individuals down the steps every time they get caught !

... Well, even in 'Get-tough' Britain I suspect after #2 he'd have got at least 5 years =2.5 served. This time... well, you'd like to think that the UK's 'enemies-of-the-people-Pinko-Liberal' judges would dish out more. Though not here long I sense (not by personal expeience!) that the PT penal system has the same problem as the UK - overcrowding???
... Sigh....Maybe he re-trains & advertises, you know; 'has-lighter-will-burn'

Having read so many discussions about this "law" so many time's & now't has ever been done over enforcing it, as usual in PT it's another case off "wait & see what happens"

... & next year's EDP price increase..
It'll be interesting to see how many do time - then maybe the UK can copy it for those responsible for Grenfell Tower ....

After years the owner of the land behind us is finally cutting down the trees on our boundary..
Not just us but other neighbours pleased to see the fire risk reduced.
