This case has been litigated for long. We understand public perception has no place in the court but the government must start to worry about the perception! If these folks are jailed for other reasons we think the lesson(s) learned so far may be enough. The government must help the court to transform itself and close cases in time by directing its attorneys to review cases that are taking long time for no good reason to drop!!![Aigaforum Jan 2017]
