Stop tampering with evidence


AS cases reach the courts and tribunals, the reason why cases do not reach the intended verdicts is that evidences are perhaps tampered with along the way.
Why do cases reach the court or tribunal in the first place?
Because our justice system is designed in a way that decisions are made based on evidence, many genuine cases are thrown out because of lack of evidence or facts hidden away before they reach the courts.
This is why police prosecutors, witnesses and referring agencies are equally to be blamed.
There are possibly some element of collusion, tampering and inducement leading up to the presentation of the case (s).
Papua New Guinea will forever be a land of honey for the good leaders we elect, the good administrative leaders we employ and the workforce we serve.
There is a long way to go before we get it right.
