Ok, I am a bit confused. Klara Mauerova, 31, is a member of a cannibal cult in teh Czech Republic who ortured her son in a locked cellar while relatives skinned him and forced him to eat his own flesh. The sentence: nine years. That is less than a tax evasion sentence.
Her sister Katerina, 35, was given ten years for her role in the sickening abuse. The court gave these light sentences despite testimony from the sons that their mother and relatives had stubbed cigarettes out on their bare skin, whipped them with belts, and tried to drown them. There was also sexual abuse and mutilation evidence.
This is simply an appalling sentence given the horrible severity of the crimes. Even with lower sentences in other countries, this is simply baffling.
