Badr Hari Facing Possible 3-Year Sentence in 2012 Assault Case

Badr Hari's assault case from 2012 just seems like it won't go away. 

Initially sentenced to a year and a half in prison with six months suspended both Hari and the prosecutor appealed the verdict, which means that Badr's case is once again in the public eye. Badr Hari issued a public apology to Koen Everink in regards to the assault in 2012 that left the Dutch businessman with an ankle and skull injury. The statement that he issued to Everink was hopeful, possibly looking for the case to just be dropped.

“I find it sad to hear what you have to experience. As a sportsman, I understand how much you must suffer as a result. I should never have thrown that punch. I hope that we will again be able to sit with each other and shake hands.”

Everink and the Public Prosecutor have claimed that the apology just isn't enough, with the prosecution looking for a three-year unconditional sentence that would see Hari serve his full term in prison unlike the previous sentence. Everink cited that he's lost about 20% of his mobility and hasn't been able to play football anymore or enjoy many of his regular activities since the attack. Also noted was that Hari has never reached out to him outside of the legal system with an apology or attempt at compensation for the medical bills and damages. [source]
