Crime pays...

I think that 1 April has come early. I read in the Daily Telegraph that in  Holland, a bank robber has been allowed to claim a deduction of £1400 for the cost of the gun he used in an armed robbery in which he stole £4700.
The Court reduced the amount of restitution he had to pay by the cost of the gun on what was said to be “sound legal precedents”.
