COMMENT | Postponements of hearings or trials may cause anxiety not only to the parties but also to the judges and the public.
We are currently observing a frenzy of enthusiasm by the public who call for early or quick trials of certain persons.
Where does the court stand in a case where the postponement of a hearing (of civil/commercial matters) or trial (of criminal cases) is applied for by either of the parties or their counsel or prosecutors?
Cases may often be postponed or otherwise delayed for various reasons. The truth of the matter is that these delays may be necessary due to the Rule of law and due process.
