Tony Blair: Ban on prosecution goes back to court

A higher magistrate is going to study the existing ban on private prosecution cases brought against Tony Blair.

What transpires from an article published by The Guardian is that the British Justice System is hidden behind a veil of secrecy. Some things might never change.

This is one major characteristic of a weak Democracy that cannot face its demons head on because its citizens are denied access to information they should know for Democracy to be a real Democracy.

Secrecy leads to speculation that undermines Democracy because there is always the presumption that things are kept secret because they are dirty, illegal, fraudulent, criminal. This is the country that has Laws that prevent members of the public from knowing what their rulers are up to with archives that will never be made public or will be made public not less than a 100 years afterwards.
