€400 fine for owner whose dogs created disturbance

A dog owner has been fined €400 and will pay for legal costs after his neighbours complained that the dogs barking was keeping them up at night, Phileleftheros reported on Wednesday.

The fine was upheld by the Appeal’s Court after the dog-owner appealed against the ruling of a lower court.

The man had pleaded guilty to having a dog without a licence and was fined €150. However, he denied he allowed his dogs to cause a disturbance.

Neighbours testified that the dogs were causing a disturbance late at night and their testimony was accepted as reliable. The accused was fined €400 and ordered to pay €180 in legal fees.

He appealed but the Appeals Court ruled against him saying that the witnesses testimony had been consistent and clear.
