LAW IS NOT A CLOISTERED VIRTUE:
And to Aiyaz Khaiyum: Fiji Courts, Magistrates, and Judges are not beyond reproach and scrutiny and occasionally to be poked fun at.
If we don't want humour, we should be living in Germany!
*Anyway, if Khaiyum doesn't want us to take a Mickey out of the Sri Lankan judges, he should ask Qorvis to correct spellings in their judgments.
*Frankly speaking, one is horrified to read their judgments, riddled with errors when it comes to their English.
*It's INJUNCTION and not INJECTION.
Richard Naidu was correct to inject a bit of humour while pointing out the wrong use of words in the judgment where the Judge had muddled Injunction with Injection; 'Application for Injection was heard on 22...'
Evaluation of evidence 10.1
"It is an accepted fact that the applicant in this case has driven his motor vehicle with the registration number JA 803 on Wailoaloa Road on the night of 31st August 2018. It is also accepted that the accused has consumed few glasses of beer. The accused has only disputed the fact that there had been a concentration of more than the prescribed concentration of alcohol in his blood at the time he has been driving his vehicle."
"The accused in this case has first appeared in court on the 29th November 2018 when the charge has been read out to him and the accused has pleaded not guilty to the charge against him."
*CORRECT version, Fijian School children, see below or better when the Minister for Everything comes down for Budget Consultation, ask him if the above from the Sri Lankan magistrate is correct English!
Which one is correct? Above or Fijileaks version below. ASK Aiyaz!
"The accused in this case first appeared in court on the 29th November 2018 when the charge was read out to him. He pleaded not guilty to the charge."
The Attorney-General’s Office says they have obtained leave to bring committal proceedings against Richard Naidu in respect of a Facebook post which appeared on his Facebook page.
A statement on the Fijian Government Facebook Page says we all owe a duty to protect our Courts and Judiciary from scandal or ridicule.
They say as this matter is now before the Courts, the committal proceedings will take their normal course.
