Yesterday, Harju County Court judged Martin Kattai who had threatened to kill Prime Minister as guilty and pinished him with two years in prison, of which he will immediately have to serve three months.  

The one year and nine months of imprisonment will not be applied unless during the three years of probation time Mr Kattai commits another crime.

Having spent two days under arrest during preliminary investigations, Mr Kattai will have to be in prison for two months and 28 days.

Also, he will have to cover proceeding costs of €645.

On top of that, Mr Kattai was fined €500 for filming and taking pictures of a closed court session and posting the video and photos on social media.

Among other things, his Facebook account featured cross-examination of Prime Minister.

Mr Kattai was taken to prison straight from the courtroom. Both defence lawyer and prosecutor may contest today’s ruling.
