The Court in First Instance did not have a single good word for the election fraud investigation. The investigation itself is incomplete, documents are missing from the case file and the time it took to bring the case to court is setting a world record for slow justice.

Most remarkable conclusion from the investigation, as it stands now, is that the United People’s party is not guilty of any wrongdoing. That is difficult, if at all, to reconcile with the charges against the party’s representative Roy Heyliger who is accused of having given money to the other defendants in exchange for their votes. And Heyliger told investigators that he is accountable to the party’s leader, Theo Heyliger.

It is incomprehensible that an investigation that took so long to complete is marred by such incredible inconsistencies. The trial will continue in April and by that time, the prosecution better have its ducks in a row, otherwise the whole case will collapse like a house of cards.
