An Amsterdam appellate court re-sentenced former K-1 heavyweight champion Badr Hari to a 24-month prison term of which 10 months will be a conditional probation period. The prison term is for a series of convictions for violent crimes, including the aggravated assault of Koen Everink during the 2012 edition of Sensation White at the Amsterdam ArenA, the court stated Thursday.
Badr Hari appeared in the court in Amsterdam on Tuesday for the appeal against his sentence for a series of aggravated assaults. Just like in his trial last year, the kick-boxer largely invoked his right to remain silent. He only spoke up once to say that he did not assault one man.
Yassin Hari, younger brother of kick-boxer Badr Hari, is being tried for perjury and assault in the court of Amsterdam. The prosecution seeks a sentence of six months imprisonment for the 26-year old.
Amsterdam-based professional kickboxer has repeatedly found himself on the wrong side of the law in the years leading up to his sentencing hearing today in Amsterdam. A judge in one of the city's courtrooms handed Hari an 18-month prison sentence, of which six months may be suspended, for his role in the assault of Koen Everink at the July 2012 Sensation White party in the Amsterdam ArenA.
