"Spared" is a word that strikes as a dagger into the heart of justice whenemployed as a malicious euphemism for "exonerated" . It is a word thatdiscredits those who use it to impugn the character of the CJ against thebackdrop of the explicit Mustill Report, which if it does anything at all,indicts the Prime Minister and his government shamefully.
Notwithstanding his injudicious garrulousness noted by the Tribunal, CJSharma has been completely vindicated and exonerated of all charges and hischief accuser now stands starkly naked in his public guilt.
At the very least the Prime Minister is guilty of over zealousness inpursuing unsubstantiated accusations described as "fragmentary calumny" inthe face of damning evidence against the Chief accuser.
Justice demands that Mr. John Jeremie be brought to justice for hisinvolvement in the affair as much as Mr. Sherman Mc Nicholls must beprosecuted for his own self serving role. He is already disgraced in thepublic eye and remains an excrescence upon the Judiciary.
The Sharma Affair has brought odium upon Government and its hirelings andrevealed the viciousness of business machinations in the arena of politics.The corrupt dealing of named land developers who collaborated with officialsto form the accusing corps demands prosecution.
Not only should Mr. Sharma's full costs be met by the Government withoutdemurring, but he should be compensated for the unjust persecution he suffered. His prosecution was hallmarked by vindictiveness.
One must now ponder in the light of the executive power which our PM covets,how dangerous is the path which this nation treads.
Even now, "Protected" as we are by the checks and balances of theWestminster system we have seen such flagrant abuse of power and patronageand nepotism. What could we anticipate then with an executive president whowields absolute power over all branches of government?
