TOPIC: Reopening of a legal case-Conditions Applying.

Reopening of a legal case-Conditions Applying. 3 years 3 months ago #17006

An unfortunate Philippino friend of mine has been incarcerated for the past 16 months and his case was completed in February. We are expecting an acquittal or dismissal of the case which will prove a major embarrassment for the police. A new Prosecutor has been appointed and he has applied for a reopening of this case which will push a final decision out at least another 18 months. Despite the fact that no new evidence is to be presented, his request has been granted. Surprise! Surprise!.
I read with interest your piece regarding the conditions applying to the reopening of a case one of which states that the proceedings should be completed within 30 days of the granting of the order, and this is covered in Section 24. Please can you advise me under what Rule or Section heading this Rule 24 may be found. I need to bring this to the attention of the Public Attorney representing the aggrieved. I am told that the earliest hearing date will be september and that the whole cycle of witnesses appearing is to be repeated. We are looking at at least 3 years in prison for a man whom I know will never be convicted due to insufficient evidence, not to mention the many unsavoury aspects of this case.
