Sentencing - Custodial sentence - Duration - Disparity.
Where the defendant pleaded guilty to an offence of being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a restriction on the importation of goods, in connection with the importation of birds of prey, and was sentenced to 22 months' imprisonment following a guilty plea, it was held that in the circumstances and with regard to the defendant's mitigation, that sentence was manifestly excessive when compared with the sentence of three years' imprisonment received by a co-accused following conviction. A sentence of 15 months' imprisonment was substituted.
