Why the judgement does not include the date and time for the execution of the death sentence. If the date and time is given then this judgment is completed otherwise is half done so who will give the date and time for the punishment to completed

Perhaps it's not a widely known fact that Death sentences are only 'NOTIONAL' and aren't executed, but automatically transitioned into 'LIFE' Terms, as per the Statute passed by SL Parliament!? Hence, the Judge doesn't Pronounce the Date and Time of Execution!!!??? ‘Land of Darmista’ Society!

Everyone including the victim and convicted has the name of their prophet supposedly who brought about a religion of peace but most countries where his worship dominates is in turmoil in their names

Criminals past their forties Thursday, 28 September 2023 10:00 AM
All these accused are past their forties. We still live in a civil society, with all its shortcomings. They should have realized that they cannot take the law unto their own hands. There is no reason to delay their punishment. Please expedite.
