A number of Pete's hardcore supporters came in support and many more were with us in Spirit as it was a working day. All of us jostled into the courtroom well before 9am. We were told by the our lawyer that there are 25 appeals to be heard today and Pete's case is number 22th and 25th on the list. Another long day ahead, I thought to myself.
When the police brought in all the case related 'criminals', we were force to give up our seats and squeezed into other benches. Imagine the courtroom can only seat around 50 people at any one time. Some Palace of Justice, it is.
What really puzzles me during my visit to The Palace of Justice was that this so called palace house only 4 courtrooms and I was told only 3 are functional at any one time despite all its grandeur. Hundreds of millions of taxpayers dollars was used to built something of this magnitude and this is all we get. Something good for the eyes. Perception to justify the usage of taxpayers dollars. Blatant wastage to be topped up with morgue-like atmosphere except for some actions at level 2 only when the 3 courtrooms swing into action.

The Justice Muzuem remained close
So was the Library
