  1. See the article: Freddie Kissoon reported Magistrate Judy Latchman to the Judicial Service Commission for “deplorable assault on judicial fairness” – not the first time this magistrate was found abusing her authority.

  2. Seems this magistrate has no clue that CCTV cameras are use globally in courts to identify criminals. Is she seriously saying that camera footage can’t be used as evidence? What’s the point governments, businesses and communities have surveillance systems then, for mere amusement? What a tool!

  3. This is yet another reason why established businesses are under threat. They are the victims of the criminals, and are again victimized for a second time by the so-called judicial system. When people in high places prioritize personal interests above truth and moral justice, this is what happens. Criminals are given a free pass, and re-commit offenses, are we don’t seem to connect that the crime situation is as bad as it is, because the courts fail to do their job. This case, as well as others like it, only serve as an impetus for those with ill intent.

  4. Business people have no protection, the Justice system doesn’t work. The level of corruption runs deep, and unless someone is being paid, nothing is done to secure justice for the innocent. Instead, this tells us, the business community, that when employees steal, the system will do nothing. A pathetic excuse, calling itself a Judicial system when it’s bathed in corruption.
