The Haneef case

July 27, 2007

Glad to hear that a decision has been made with Dr Haneef. Even if he’s guilty, our justice system has failed basic expectations and the case should be dropped. Australia’s got a reasonably clean record – no person has been held without charge for that length since WW2 – and we shouldn’t change our expectations of the justice system just because of terrorism.

Of course, if the AFP find new evidence I would have no objections to him being charged and brought to trial again like any other case.
