Why people still wants to trafficking while they know that they will never have good ending? They because of greed and made this upon themselves. But they do not know, because of their greed, more families being broken apart, more people will die because of the drugs. So, death penalty is still a must in law in order to punish them. As for lawyer Eugene, I feel you as you cannot win these kind of cases. But you should know that you should not fight for people who will harm the society or even your family members.

I think judges get paid more in the private sector , those who stay behind in our courts do have love or care for the community and want to improve the system .
A CHC lawyer could have made 3-5 times more than a judge .
Especially with social media these days , judges have to emphasise more on how they came up with the decisions so the public could understand their reasonings
This lawyer should have been clear that you need proof before making allegations . He is a disgrace to his profession with the current facts at hand as it appears ...

Too much sympathy for the drug traffickers. Not enough sympathy for the victims & families they destroyed. #stupid. Human Rights is for the victims of crimes, not the criminals.

This man had priorities all wrong. At the tail end of drug activities are the addicts. Has any of the so called advocates of harsh drug laws came across how the family of the addicts suffer? The addict's Wife, children and the others. SANA had the facts and figures about them. A very sorry tale. Anyone bothered about them? Take a look for yourself. Know the truth.
