“He was accused of using ByLock app. Despite the findings of the expert report in which they stated that the date and time – even the seconds- for singing up, logging in&out, and signing out were exactly the same, he was found guilty and sentenced to 12 years in prison. How easy [to ruin people’s lives]!”
