The judgment of a district court is open to appeal to a court of appeal. In certain cases, the parties require leave to continue the proceedings, which is granted by a court of appeal. Instructions for appeal are issued by the district court.
The prosecutor can appeal against the judgment of the district court, normally as a result of the charge having been dismissed or the penalty having been too lenient, or to the benefit of the convicted person, e.g. so as to have the penalty decreased.
