Where’s the ev­i­dence for ‘mutiny’

Lesotho Times - - Feedback -

IN re­sponse to “‘Tor­tured’ colonel bleeds in court” ( Le­sotho Times, June 19 2015), the rule of law should not be ap­plied dis­crim­i­nately. I do not un­der­stand why the High Court seems to view these peo­ple merely as sol­diers and not as cit­i­zens of Le­sotho.

The fact is no one should be in cus­tody for more than 24hrs with­out be­ing charged. This right should ap­ply across the board, ir­re­spec­tive of where you work. As to why the judges of the High Court make an ex­cep­tion to these sol­diers, I have no idea. That is my hum­ble ob­ser­va­tion.

PRIME Min­is­ter Pakalitha Mo­sisili is fail­ing Ba­sotho. Un­til now, there has been no ev­i­dence put for­ward of this so-called mutiny plot.

It seems these sol­diers are pay­ing the price for not sup­port­ing the raids of 31 Au­gust 2014. May God pro­tect these poor sol­diers and all ac­cused.
