    Judgement after 20 Years. Wonder of Asia. No one in power, Judiciary, Bar Association or Legal Processionals do not want to change this system since it has become their livelihood.

    Justice delayed is justice denied.

    It won't be only 20 years for the judgement, expect an Appeal which will take another 20 years!
