JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED

JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED
By Chisom David
(For Family Writers)

"Justice delayed is justice denied" is a legal maxim meaning that if legal redress is available for a party that has suffered some injury (just like that of Biafrans in 1945 and in 1967-1970 a genocide war which Britain was the arrow head behind the starvation which result in death of millions of children), but is not forthcoming in a timely fashion, it is effectively the same as having no redress at all. This principle is the basis for the right to a speedy trial and similar rights which are meant to expedite the legal system, because it is unfair for the injured party (Biafrans) to have to sustain the injury with little hope for resolution.

The phrase has become a rallying cry for legal reformers who view courts, UN or governments as acting too slowly in resolving legal issues either because the existing system is too complex or overburdened, or because the issue or the indigenous people of Biafrans in question lacks political favour. "It is been said and proven that the sword comes into the world, because of justice delayed and justice denied. Martin Luther King, Jr., used the phrase in the form "justice too long delayed is justice denied" in his " Letter from Birmingham Jail",. "A sense of confidence in the courts is essential to maintain the fabric of ordered liberty for a free people of Biafrans and three things could destroy that confidence and do incalculable damage to society:(1) that people come to believe that inefficiency and delay will drain even a just judgment of its value; (2)that people who have long been exploited in the smaller transactions of daily life come to believe that courts,UN and world powers cannot vindicate their rights of freedom from fraud and over- reaching; (3)that people come to believe the law – in the larger sense – cannot fulfill its primary function to protect them and their families in their homes, at their work, and on the public streets.

For how long will our rights as Indigenous people of Biafrans be delayed?we are been killed everyday by Hausa fulani and the world keeps quiet about it,for how long will our Justice as people be recognized? The creation of Nigeria is a fraud and injustice and should be justified by the UN and world government by letting The Indigenous People of Biafra be free from the contraception called Nigeria, a man cannot create a country only God, what lord lugard did is against the law,Biafra has been in existence more than 5000 years old,we can't continue to be in a country who refer us Biafrans as minority and will never rule the country, we are been made to travel abroad and abandon our place, we can't continue to be with Nigeria as a people because we have been before the white men came.All Hail Biafra
