Krejcir appeal likely to only be heard mid-April
Radovan Krejcir was sentenced to an effective 35 years behind bars this week.
Krejcir was sentenced to an effective 35 years behind bars this week for attempted murder, kidnapping and drug dealing.
He was forced to represent himself during sentencing argument because he didn't have access to his lawyer and strict security measures didn't allow him to make calls.
Krejcir says he wasn't allowed to call his lawyer in prison or arrange any witnesses, with Judge Colin Lamont refusing to grant a court order to allow him access.
Krejcir also wanted Lamont to recuse himself, saying he had been treated unfairly by the judge.
"You are biased, you are unfair, unobjective and dishonest."
The Czech national's lawyer Cliff Alexander says they will be appealing and taking he matter further if necessary.
"Should the judge come to an opinion that another court wouldn't come to a different finding and there are no reasonable prospects of success, we would then petition the Supreme Court of Appeal."
Krejcir's application for leave to appeal has been postponed until the judge is next available, which is only likely to be in mid-April.
