She added that the court, in another ruling, decided to criminalize one of the repeaters in violation of the provisions of Article 404 of the Penal Code and put him in temporary works for a period of three years and fees, and because he is a duplicate in the legal sense, decided to tighten the penalty against him so that he placed him in temporary works for five years and fees.

And she indicated that the tightening of the penalty comes in accordance with the provisions of Article 101 of the Penal Code, which tightens the sentence imposed in the event that the perpetrator of the crime is a repeat offender, and sentences were issued against him not more than 10 years ago and did not fall from him, which necessitates the severity of the sentence imposed.

She emphasized that such strictness comes to achieve public and private deterrence and eliminate criminal phenomena.
