Under Greek law, Konstantino, and a man sentenced to 12 months for perjury, did not go to prison and were instead told to pay money to the court.

The Daly's gave anybody in their position the following advice.

“You must have an interpreter. We were given so much documentation but it was all in greek. You must have legal advice.”
