Inter Arma received by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras and other comrades:

 On 04/02, took place the last hearing of Tamara Sol Farías Vergara’s trial. The comrade was sentenced to 7 years (frustrated murder) and 61 days (simple theft) of imprisonment and a fine. The judge also ordered her DNA sample to be taken in order to include her in the National Registry of Convicted. The court rejected the mitigation of  “prior honest conduct” and didn’t take into concideration the fact that she admited her action in the court. Upon hearing the decision, Tamara’s family cuased a disturbance in the courtroom by throwing leaflets and calling the judges “fascists”, which resulted in them being restrained by the tribunal guards. The defence will make an appeal in order for the sentence to be reduced or another trial to take place.
