Ha Ha Magistrate why no bail like you give to the powerful politicians? Aha yes, you will not get any overseas posting on retirement when doing favors for this type of people, no.

She would have misappropriated Rs.12.5 billion... then there won't be any punishment...

Lawyers and judges in this country are not second to politicians. In fact most of the second rate lawyers become politicians.

If she was a politician bail is no problem and on top of that she wold be staying in the prison hospital until she gets bail. What a pathetic country where there is one rule for elite and another for normal citizens.
joker Friday, 26 January 2018 08:04 PM
