QUESTION OF THE DAY
WHEN WILL THE NIA 9 APPEAR IN COURT FOR BAIL APPLICATION?
Due process of law is based on the presumption of innocence. This goes along with the principle that allegation does not equal to guilt.
Under a just criminal justice system bail must be accessible, affordable and commensurate to the seriousness to the alleged crime.
In the past allegations could lead to detention for years with or without trial. The past should be put behind. Those accused of crime should be seen as innocent until they plead guilty or are proven guilty. They should be granted bail and tried with speed without undue delay.
