The appeal process moved very quickly and they started the new trial yesterday at 5:30 pm. The trial went much like the first two, but when the verdict came back it was a verdict of guilt. They said that the deportation process will now move forward and I have a right to appeal it within ten days, so it does not appear that they will deport me before then.

The regional court reversed the municipal court’s non-guilty verdict, sending the case back for a new trial.
