What is an human appeal?

An appeal is a legal remedy provided to a convicted person if his conviction was improperly sentenced due to errors committed by the Judge, the Prosecutor’s counsel, or even the Defence lawyer. In particular an appeal refers to a right to allow the person who has lost a trial to be tried again by the competent court. In essence, it is like re-examining the case at second instance.



How will the Court decide whether to grant a human appeal?


The Court of Appeal will assess whether or not an error was made during your trial or sentencing hearing that justifies the remedy you seek.



When can I appeal a decision?


You have 10 days from the date you were convicted/sentenced to file a notice of appeal. It is crucial to consult with counsel immediately after you are convicted/sentenced in order to begin the appeal process. A failure to do so may result in you not being able to appeal your matter.
