Will We See a Decision This Time?

Will the PTC manage to hand down its first decision on bail this time around and for the first time this year (PTC last successfully ruled on a bail appeal in Dec, 2007), as the last half a year has been unfruitfully spent on a festival of defense motions and PTC responses to them, the dragged-out process which has effectively blocked decisions from coming out. Please, bear in mind that this is just the bail hearings stage of the proceedings which is fairly rudimentary and, normally, does not take nearly as long in any other criminal jurisdiction. This court is, of course, an exception in so many respects. Let's wait and see what the PTC manages to produce tomorrow and then a few days afterwards that it should take for them to come up with a decision.
