    The Criminal Court rejected a request for suspension of the sentence and sentenced the elderly man to 2.5 years for the charge of acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and a sentence of one year for the offense of carrying and using a firearm. The sentences are concurrent.

    “For the benefit of the accused, we take into account his admission in Court, which we consider to be immediate, since after the addition of the charge of causing grievous bodily harm, he immediately made an admission” is stated among others in the decision of the Court.
