IRELAND’S parole laws should be amended to encourage murderers like evil Jozef Puska to plead guilty, it has been claimed.
Puska had denied the murder and continued to protest his innocence over the course of the trial despite evidence that he had made confessions to Gardai, his DNA was under Ashling’s fingernails and his bike was found at the scene. CCTV also showed him on the prowl.
Mr Justice Tony Hunt said his life sentence was “richly deserved”. He said Puska’s evidence had been “indescribable”.
He told The Irish Sun: “Policymakers need to identify some method of encouraging people accused of murder to plead guilty.
