The appeal judgement is scheduled for 2 April.

In a case of kidnapping and rape dating back to 2017, the original verdict was asked to be upheld in court on Wednesday afternoon.

The accused is alleged to have held a woman captive against her will in Luxembourg and raped her.

Initially, in November 2018, the man had been sentenced to a ten year prison sentence.

He contested this in court and the woman had testified in court that she had in fact lied. The judge handed the sentence down nonetheless.

The appeal verdict is scheduled for 2 April.
