COURT MARTIAL ON WHY IS THE MEDIA EXCLUDED SO FAR?

The whole country knows that a court martial is taking place. A case
before a judge was adjourned because of his absence due to the role he
is playing at the court martial. Some lawyers are reported to be
serving as counsels at the court martial.
Courts are open to the public to ensure accountability to the public.
It is a fundamental principle of jurisprudence that justice must not
only be done but must be seen to be done.
It is the media which enables the public to know whether accused
persons are given a fair hearing before an independent and impartial
tribunal.
The public is deeply interested in knowing who is being tried, why
they are being tried, where they are being tried, by whom and whether
they have defence counsels.
We will contact the authorities to find out what is responsible for
the secrecy and what their decision is on the issue of media coverage
of the proceedings.
