Key facts of the case:

The plaintiff was sentenced for having committed a crime of changing landmarks. The building’s owner, who was allowed to intervene in the case as an assistant, filed for civil compensation against the plaintiff for material and non-material damages, as well as for expenses accrued by fees and court costs. The trial was held and the sentence deemed the allegation unfounded, thus absolving the plaintiff of the above-mentioned crime; the demand for civil compensation was also deemed unfounded. The assistant appealed, contesting the judgement about the factual matter being deemed unfounded. The Public prosecutor and the plaintiff responded.
