CJ’s remarks & legislators

THIS is with reference to your editorial ‘CJ’s remarks’ (July 9). You have rightly asked why the apex court does not “focus on the broken judicial system…, or an abysmally low rate of successful prosecution that allows criminals to walk free.”
You have wondered why the court should be so selective. However, you have to admit that the pathetic state of our judicial system is due to the actions of those who rule the country as if it was their personal fiefdom. Our parliamentarians are concerned only with perpetuating their hold on us hapless citizens.
To achieve their aims, they do everything in their power to subvert the law. Just look at the bills they propose to table before the parliament to prevent illegal money from being brought back to the country and allow those who have sworn allegiance to foreign powers to contest elections.
