Zoot Suit Criminal Defence  by COSIMO

Now that the Vigil, marking the date of the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, is over, perhaps there is a more concrete way to honour her blessed memory: Schedule the Yorgen Fenech murder case for a jury trial, at the earliest available date. As they say, justice delayed is justice denied, and the obsolete and tedious way that evidence and testimony is publicly collected does not need to be repeated. If there's not enough clear and convincing evidence to go to a jury in this case, there will never be enough.

Set the trial date, organize the evidence and witnesses, and move it forward, please. To do anything else is an insult to her memory. Besides, the defendant is entitled to a speedy trial. How about finding a judge who is available, and trying the case the last week of November, please. The Truth shall set you free. 

The defence cannot possibly say that two years is not sufficient time to prepare for trial, and we know from the literally hundreds of media reports about the witnesses, even those who have not yet testified under oath, or made a deal with Government. I realize that some of Labour ministers will attempt to postpone the inevitable for several more years, but it's time to either try Fenech in a court of law, or totally give up  what has been aptly described recently as the "castrated court system." Malta may never get another chance to try to achieve justice.

Please allow me to remind you what is at stake; nothing less than Malta's immortal soul.

" And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur,  where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night, forever and ever." Revelation 20:10
