Two sets of laws for citizens

Letters, Normal

The National, Tuesday June 30th, 2015

 This country seems to have two laws, one for the grassroots people, which is always fast and quick where law breakers are jailed quickly. The other law is for the rich and the political leaders, which is slow and time consuming because of investigations. Many of our political leaders and the rich citizens get away with minimum or no penalties. It therefore seems the laws are made to discriminate against the small people while the well-to-do people often escape punishment. Can some of our political leaders facing allegations of corruption be dealt with quickly so we can see the end result that these leaders are not above the law. It is taking too long for investigations into their alleged corrupt practices.
