The Court of Appeal has announced its rejection of stabby Ainslie street preacher Isa Islam’s appeal against his nine year sentence for making Andrew Dyer a tetraplegic at the Ainslie shops back in 2009.

We’ve covered this story before.

At issue was just how mentally unwell Mr Islam was when he commenced the frenzed stabbing that only ended when his knife broke.

Justices Refshauge, Burns and Marshall have rejected the appeal, as well as efforts by the DPP to increase the sentence.
