COURT WATCH 3/2012

[23rd February 2012]

This bulletin outlines two cases involving deaths arising from inter-party political violence – both of which were eventually heard and resulted in convictions in the High Court.  The first case took an extraordinarily long time to come to trial – just under 10 years from original arrest to trial.  The second case took over two years from arrest to trial.
