Here's a random item from the news that you might find interesting. A man stands accused of a crime, and if he is convicted he faces a jail term of about three years. His case has been working its way through the Indian legal system for THIRTY-THREE years! By now ALL the other people involved in the case - victim, witnesses, investigating officers - are dead. And yet still his case proceeds and he has to pay for a lawyer to defend him.
