He also stressed that he will appeal the sentence to the leftist leader after January 15, which is when the sentence will be confirmed as such.
“We are going to file an appeal for this ruling in the first instance. The appeal is going to be raised so that a higher court review this sentence where excesses have been committed”, he said.
