The Case

Sentence Imprisonment. In the instant case, a sentence of five years' imprisonment after a guilty plea for an offence of conspiracy to defraud the public revenue was manifestly excessive, in the light of how he was dealt with for a previous fraud, and the way in which one of the co-accused was dealt with for the same frauds.
