Gomes v State

Sentence – Imprisonment. The Privy Council considered an appeal against a sentence of 13 years' imprisonment imposed in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, in circumstances where the defendant had been remanded in custody in the United Kingdom pending extradition. The board allowed the appeal to the extent of reducing the defendant's sentence to 12 and-a-half years' imprisonment by deducting time spent in custody following his return to Trinidad.
