Suspended sentences in PNG mutiny cases

Twelve PNGDF soldiers who were convicted of mutiny have received suspended sentences. Details here. Excerpt:
The National reports that on Saturday the Defence Force judge, Justice Panuel Mogish, sentenced the ranking officer to four years in prison and the rest to three. 
However, he suspended their sentences and put them on a good behavior bond for two years. 
He also ordered each soldier to pay a $US 300 dollar fine. 
The Judge recommended the soldiers be given the opportunity to leave the Defence Force rather than being dishonourably discharged.
