    The witness is still alive because the case was dragged, now with the change of Justice Minster, they know that the case is going to be closed, they wanted to finish the witness now.

    I agree with the above comment. mollycoddling criminals instead of finishing the obvious criminal cases and put them behind bars if found guilty. With this dragging Govt. indirectly let criminals to take revenge from witnesses etc.thus promoting more crimes. Since former VVIPs are involved in such crimes the Governing people are still afraid to proceed with these cases. A shame!
