Logically Speaking

Logically Speaking

Editor,

I am not a legal person so can someone help me understand the following.

If ex- PM Lasenia Qarase can be sent to jail for some crime he is said to have committed in the distant past (is it 10years ago?) although he denied doing it ,then can ex- PM Sitiveni Rabuka be also put on trial and sent to jail for the crime he now admits having commited? Another ex- PM Mahendra Chaudhry is also on trial for crimes he is said to have committed in the past and he too could be sent to jail.

So, logically speaking, can we take it that say 10 years from now when Frank Bainimarama becomes ex-PM he too can be put on trial and send to jail for the crime he has committed?

I am of course only speaking hypothetically.

sincerely,

Rajend Naidu
