    Ten years of court hearings! Learned judges and lawyers, justice delayed is no justice.

    He must be provided satisfactory medical assistance, locally or overseas at the state expense. Because he served the nation honestly and as a result was subject to brutal attack by criminals. Who were behind those criminals is another factor to find out.

    These culprits lived a 10 years happy life, while the victim lived a 10 years miserable life.
    Justice delayed is justice denied!
