The Maltese Courts punished family man Daniel Holmes by sentencing him to a frightening 10-12 year sentence, alongside a €23,000 pay off for being found in co-possession of marijuana at his Gozo residence.
Daniel has since turned his life around, and is hoping for a second chance and a fairer hearing. He understands that there are consequences to his actions and is ready to pay for his mistake, but many feel this is a travesty of justice and want a say.
We started this petition to create awareness behind the inequality surrounding local sentences. When sentences for rape charges and molestation, drug crimes committed by locals are given a shorter time, with some cases even getting probational or short-term (2-4 years), how do we then justify the mishandling of this man's situation?
