Let's learn from Section 34 mess
The matter of Section 34 of the Administration of Justice (Indictable Proceedings) Act 2011 has generated so much recrimination and "bad blood" that the protagonists, on all sides, should be made aware that there is definitely a danger of it degenerating into a prolonged "war of words" which could very well witness a resurfacing of past unsavoury elements in the body politic which were thought to have been laid to rest.
The issues at hand are neither clear-cut nor simple as some are wont to imagine. This continuing hiatus has seen energies which ought to have been better expended on the core issue, i.e. improving the administration of justice being directed into spurious and inconclusive arguments aimed at identifying responsibility and consequential "punishment", the end of which no one can envisage.
In the circumstances, I therefore suggest that lessons are to be learned from this unsavoury episode and these could be used to point a way which could eventually benefit the political and constitutional development of the country. In normal circumstances, this writer would suggest that a Joint Select Committee of the Parliament be the medium to investigate and report on this matter. However, he recognises that the situation is, by no means "normal", given the charged political atmosphere which exists. Thus, recourse may have to be had of yet another such vehicle. This should preferably be headed by an eminent jurist with parliamentary and governmental experience and who would be removed from the issues.
