‘Three people arrested in a migrant labour exploitation case will miss their next hearing so they can attend a birthday party in China.’
Their defence lawyer claims the party is “culturally significant”–apparently, the administration of justice in NZ takes a back seat to that. When it suits. The fact is, the moment “culture” is taken into consideration in a court of law, then the process becomes illegitimate. Because that means that all defendants will not be treated in the equal, colourblind way our society demands of the law.
Leftists/”progressives”/socialists are not welcome here. Pay for your own soapbox.
