    I guessed the verdict the moment I read Kuensel/BBSC article where the Haa Judge stated that they had carried out their own ‘investigation’.

  2. Kala Yongba

    The fairness of Judgement is diminishing. At last the judiciary systems of our country will became a play field of politician, powerful people and richest man.

    this is not fair..may be the Foreign Minister is OAG cousin or through marriage.. he helped FM a lot… This OAG made the Dasho Naten Zangmo useless. Dasho Naten never commit such mistakes… I salute her.. be alert dasho and do something in this la.
