Michael Shields to remain in prison

Michael Shields will stay in prison for 10 years and have to pay a £71,000 fine following a shock decision by the Bulgarian Appeal Court. While his original sentence has been cut by 5 years, his fine has been increased. Reports say the Shields family are "dumbfounded" by the decision; they had been hoping for a retrial based on the signed confession of another Liverpool man, Graham Sankey. The appeal judges have agreed that Shields can serve the remainder of his sentence on British soil and he is expected to be back in the UK within a month but that will be little comfort to the Shields family who have campaigned tirelessly for his release.
