Re. Defence accuses victim (Castanet, Dec. 1)
When exactly do judges execute their roles in keeping order in the court?
Where are the boundaries that should be enforced when lawyers cross those moral, ethical and respectful lines?
“Victim blaming” is despicable and even more disgusting to put it on a 13-year-old who was murdered.
These disgusting defences by criminal lawyers should be ruled out by the judges overseeing the proceedings. Reading this defence makes me sick. Can you imagine the parents sitting in court listening to this about their 13-year-old murdered daughter?
Where is the decency and respect? Come on justice system. It’s time clean up your proceedings.
