Another show trial aimed at making an example
Let’s assume that this trial is in China or Russia. You are an independent observer, tasked with ensuring real justice.
The ‘judge’ also works as a prosecutor for an organization that is currently seeking to prosecute the defendant separately. One of the first witnesses for the prosecution admits in testimony that her written evidence is wrong. The ‘judge’ refuses to allow a large number of defence witnesses.
Show trial? No, Bradley Manning’s trial in the USA.
