    It was only recently that the Defence Secretary said that Police powers have not been curtailed and there is no deterioration of law and order in the country.

    delay is not merely because lawyers and why you don't blame to the lawmakers for not taking any actions to implement suitable procedures to expedite disposing cases. Today some cases will be postponed to next January.

    today no lawyer accepted his or her professional fee and no client had to incur any legal expense today.

    thanuka Friday, 20 July 2012 01:26 PM
