In the case of Mr. Azadehel I think it adviceable to thread with care, David. There might be more to his case than first meets the eye as we learn from Eric Hansen's "Orchid Fever. A Horticultural Tale of Love, Lust and Lunacy".
Objectively there was a huge discrepancy between the serious indictment, massively covered in the press, and the final verdict of the Appeals Court, where his sentence from the first trial was markedly reduced. The appeal ruling is accesible here: R v Henry Azadehdel | InforMEA
Now we are at it, let me once again take the opportunity to recommend Mr. Hansen's book. It's really an entertaining and exciting yarn, if ever there was one. It explores the hilarious and crazier as well as the shadier/darker sides of the orchid world, especially the realm of the Paphioholics!
I have, by the way, had the veracity of the book's Danish connection corroborated by a friend of mine, who was very well acquainted with the eminent Danish con-amore botanist, the late Gunner Seidenfasen, who appears in the very last part of the book.
