A befitting way of starting this paper is to quote what Ms. Touria Prayag boldly and brilliantly wrote on the justice system: "Justice is man-made - and the jury is made up of men and women - and because it is man-made, it is fallible. Because of this fallibility, we have always stood against the death penalty. In the same spirit of the infallibility of Man and his justice, we refuse to think that the DPP should not be allowed to call for a new trial when there is new compelling evidence either that there was a failure to convict someone who is guilty or to let someone who is innocent walk away. Why should we go stir-crazy about a criminal who escaped justice having a Damocles sword over his head? Justice should be allowed to catch up with those who are guilty. No constitutional right should prevent that".
