What is the difference between Persecution and Prosecution?
Persecution is a process of punishing a person found guilty but prosecution is a process of finding if a person is guilty by providing fair trial. The recent decision of UK Supreme Court to conduct a secret session for first time, is reminiscent of dark ages of 15th Century and the procedure adopted by church at that time to persecute people. Even if an isolated incident may not have strong bearing but as a court of record it has set a most undesirable precedent which shall have far reaching consequences for courts in all jurisdiction.
Secrecy and Natural Justice or Audi Alteram Partem were never bed fellows. In fact they do not see each other, eye to eye.
