Innocence of a German convicted in a stabbing incident 28 years ago!

The Netherlands' highest court ruled yesterday that there was no evidence to convict a German citizen of the crime of stabbing his father-in-law at a camp near Amsterdam 28 years ago.

Frank F. was sentenced.

Under German privacy laws, he is sentenced to five years in prison for manslaughter.

Frank F.'s father-in-law passed away.

After he was stabbed in the coastal town of Peten, north of Amsterdam, in 1994.

It was Frank F.

He initially admitted to the crime, but later retracted, and was acquitted in 1994. Nevertheless, he was convicted on appeal and sentenced to five years in prison, and served part of the sentence.

The Supreme Council issued a decision in 2001 to re-trial, after a legal psychologist concluded that the man's statement was a false confession.

The court adopted the opinion of the specialized expert, and the indications that another person had committed the crime.

Prosecutors also demanded the acquittal of Frank F.
