[2009] EWCA Crim 1396

Sentences of four and five years imposed on three offenders for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and possession of firearms without authority were not reduced. The offenders were accomplices in a major conspiracy that resulted in lenient sentences being imposed on two men charged with serious drug trafficking offences in 1993 and it was not appropriate to show an element of mercy.
