After a night of drinking, a 22-year-old man stabbed an acquaintance who was lying on the sofa and talking on the phone. The court convicted the man of manslaughter.
In addition to the prison sentence, the court on Tuesday ordered the 22-year-old to be placed in a closed drug clinic. After serving part of his sentence in prison, he will receive treatment there for around two years before he can be released on parole. Numerous friends and acquaintances of the victim acknowledged the verdict, which they felt was too mild, with expressions of displeasure.
