Justice unseen; justice done?

Posted in justice by allovermcr on May 7, 2009

Peter Wilby writes in the New Statesman (towards the end of the piece) about the Pakistani men arrested recently in anti-terror raids, several in Cheetham Hill, against whom all charges were dropped. Of the 12 men arrested, 11 are now in the control of the UK Borders Agency with deportation a likely outcome.

The men now face having their cases heard in secret tribunals which demand lower standards of proof than public courts of law. For more on how this follows the failure of ministers to act on the recommendation of the Chilcot report that intercept evidence be revealed in court, read the Wilby piece. But this is hardly a fine example of the British justice system at work .
