Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe in Ireland.  

In the USA,the convicted person doesn't "appeal" the sentence. The convict's complaint addresses the injury (certain death) resulting from defective "due process" at trial e.g. errors in findings of fact (evidence) or findings of law (procedure) that preclude an exculpatory verdict. The remedy sought is a new trial.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
