One of the two men convicted for the murder of Lee Rigby, a British soldier has filed an appeal against his sentence.
Michael Adebolajo who got a whole-life sentence for the murder of the soldier has appealed against the ruling.
Adebolajo, 29, together with Michael Adebowale, 22, drove into Fusilier Rigby with a car before hacking him to death in Woolwich, south-east London.
While sentencing the duo, Justice Sweeney said Adebolajo’s was a “rare case” which warranted a whole-life term.
The judge held that both men who are Muslim converts “butchered” the 25-year-old soldier.
Adebolajo from Romford, East London however denied murder, and described the killing as a “military operation”, as he claimed that he was a “soldier of Allah”.
Michael Adebowale from Greenwich, South-east London, received a life sentence but has to spend a minimum of 45 years in prison.
