Dr Töben has been imprisoned for 3 months
Thursday 13th August 2009, Dr Töben's appeal was heard today, beginning at 10.00 AM. Numerous arguments were put forward by the defence barrister Mr David Perkins. At the end of the hearing the three judges retired for approximately three quarters of an hour. Upon their return, they read out the verdict, that the appeal had been rejected, and ordered that Dr Töben begin his sentence immediately. He peacefully accompanied the two Federal Policemen who arrived dressed in business suits. Initially he will be taken to Yatala Labour Prison, from where it will be decided to which prison he will serve his sentence.
