Michael Shields Appeal Decision Soon

Michael Shields should know in the next few days whether his appeal against a 15-year jail term in Bulgaria for attempted murder has been successful. Everyone on Merseyside will be hoping for a re-trial for the 19-year old who has already been detained in a Bulgarian prison for 10 months. This despite a written confession from Graham Sankey that it was he who assaulted barman Martin Georgiev with a broken paving stone in the Black Sea port of Varna following Liverpool’s Champions League victory in Istanbul last summer. Shields’ father attended court for a hearing at Bulgaria’s Supreme Court in Sofia yesterday and expects a decision in the next three days.
