AS We Wait

As we wait is the present scenario of Charles Ajoloko case.

The State requested three extensions or should I say 3 delays.

They were granted.

In fact, the State got a 2 month extension without even am order.

On 9/18/2018, on the State’s second extension request, they were given 60 days to respond.

This means that the State should have responded by 11/18/2018.

The State did not respond.

No response.

No response from State.

No response from the judge.

Nothing.

Two munths later, the State asked for their 3rd etension.

What happened to the additional 2 months when they did not respond.

Nothing.

What is the defintion of justice delayed is justice denied?

Justice delayed is justice denied” is a legal maxim meaning that if legal redress is available for a party that has suffered some injury, but is not forthcoming in a timely fashion, it is effectively the same as having no redress at all. This principle is the basis for the right to a speedy trial and similar rights which are meant to expedite the legal system, because it is unfair for the injured party to have to sustain the injury with little hope for resolution. The phrase has become a rallying cry for legal reformers who view courts or governments as acting too slowly in resolving legal issues either because the existing system is too complex or overburdened, or because the issue or party in question lacks political favour.ustice delayed is justice denied” is a legal maxim meaning that if legal redress is available for a party that has suffered some injury, but is not forthcoming in a timely fashion, it is effectively the same as having no redress at all.

I guess Charles Ajoloko lacks political favor.

And The Wait Continues.
