Justice Delayed (and Confused) – Part II

The Sandiganbayan showed Justice delayed, denied, confused, biased and wasteful. Navy Case 1: In 19 yrs., SB convicted 1 low-level Navy officer & 2 civilians, out of 45-57 original accused officers of much higher rank, many at large. Case II was for 2.5 million and after 5 years produced one guilty officer who died before having to serve an 18-year jail sentence.

Justice Delayed – Part I

[I]t took 9 years (28 minus 19) for the government to bring the case to court, and 19 years for the SB to hear and decide on it. Now that is what you call a snail’s pace. Compare this with what the Speedy Trial Act of 1998 requires…a total of 225 days by law versus 19 years in reality.
