Rio20 ACCESS TO JUSTICE

I HAD GREAT FAITH IN THE JUSTICE SYTEM AND NOW SEE THAT IT MUST BE READJUSTED. THE SYTEM FAILS MISERABLY FOR VICTIMS AND WITNESSES AND THE PENALTIES CAN ADD INSULT TO INJURY. I HAVE WORKED HARD FOR 4 YEARS ON CASES AT SUPREME COURT AND THE COST WERE MONUMTENTAL AND THE TIME AND EFFORT THE SAME.
MOST PEOPLE CANNOT AFFORD A LAWYER AND THIS IS A REAL WALL TO OVERCOME WHEN IT COMES TO LEGAL MATTERS AND THE COURT SYSTEM.

LAWYERS FOR THE DEFENDANTS KNOW EVERY TURN TO TAKE AND GET PEOPLE OFF ON TECHNICALITIES ALL THE TIME. RECENTLY AFTER 3 YEARS ON ONE CASE WHEN WE THOUGHT WE WERE GAINING GROUND THE SHOCK WE FELT BY THE JUDGES DECISION TO HAVE THE CASE DISMISSED AND ALSO BILL ALL COST TO THE VICTIMS WHICH WAS VERY DISTURBING. THE DEFENDANTS BEING VERY WEALTHY AND ALSO GUILTY SEEM TO HAVE ALL THE CONSIDERATIONS WHILE VICTIMS AND WITNESSES RECIEVED VERY LITTLE OR NONE. AFTER THIS AN APPEAL PROCESS IS NEEDED AND YET AGAIN VERY CONFUSING AND TIME CONSUMING, IT APPEARS THAT THE CRIMINALS HAVE THE UPPER HAND AND THIS WOULD ALSO SEEM VERY MUCH LIKE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS.
OUR VOICES MUST BE HEARD WHEN IT COMES TO JUSTICE AND ALSO ANY SYSTEM WHICH NEEDS TO BE CHALLENGED FOR WRONGDOING ON THIER PART..
ACCESS TO JUSTICE IS A STEP FOR ALL OF US AND IT LEADS TO GREATER EMPATHY IN OTHER GROUPS AND AGENCIES. A DOOR OPEN RATHER THAN A WALL THAT IS DIFFICULT TO MANUVER AROUND OR OVER.
ONE THING THAT IS VERY CLEAR UNDER BRITISH COLUMBIA LAW IS THAT THOSE WHO COMMITT OFFENCES GET FREE ATTORNIES AND THOSE WHO ARE WEALTHY AND ALSO COMMITT CRIMES CAN AFFORD HIGH PRICED ONES TO RELIEVE THEM OF THEIR LEGAL AND FINANCAIL RESPONSIBILITY TO THOSE THEY HAVE HARMED. WHO IS MAKING THESE DECISONS AND WHO IS RUNNING THINGS. WE NEED TO BE MORE INVOLVED AND PARITCIPATE AND TAKE BACK OUR POWER
