A spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s Office said: "We have received a request for the sentence of Pawel Relowicz to be considered under the Unduly Lenient Sentence (ULS) scheme.

JAILED: Pawel Relowicz was sentenced to life with a minimum of 27 years for the rape and murder of Libby Squire.

"The Law Officers have 28 days from sentencing to consider the case and make a decision."

Meanwhile, the Court of Appeal has confirmed Relowicz's defence team has not so far lodged an appeal against his conviction or sentence.

A person convicted of a sentence has 28 days to appeal, which means Relowicz has a week left to lodge an appeal, if he wishes to do so.
