Where’s the justice in pepper-spray saga?
The law is the law and should be followed.
It would appear that the Government, in its effort to reduce costs, decided not to prosecute the protesters who on December 2, 2016 illegally blocked entry to the House of Assembly.
During the clash between the police and the protesters against the construction of a new airport, 15 protesters were pepper-sprayed and 14 policemen were injured.
Essentially, individuals who broke the law and stopped access to the House of Assembly have not had to go through due process. This is unacceptable in a democracy.
The protesters effectively have been rewarded for their illegal behaviour.
