I served as a State witness today -- the photo is taken with a webcam inside the court-house quad. One sees the quality of moral support I had. The process overall gave me a positive impression. Officials were ever so helpful and professional -- South Africans at their best. At the same time, though, they could have knocked months off the legal process if they had just done their homework before-hand: checked what they needed for the (non) trial that was. OBSERVATION: Delays are not a problem exclusive to the courts. It is a South African problem. Somebody should examine the legal process and smooth it out.
