hypothetically speaking, i have a interesting quandary, so to speak, and would like some advice/imput towards this: given a scenario (theoretically) how would you react and what would your decision be? the scenario is as such: 18 years ago, there was a murder case and which was unsolved up until approx 6 years ago. The accused is a extremely notorious criminal and was committed to trial for the aforesaid murder case and 2 others. Conviction for life for 1 murder and not guilty for the other. The criminal has (apparently) advanced parkinsons disease and may not live out the trial or year. The director of prosecutions has quietly asked the family of the deceased to decide or give opinion as to the criminal proceedings to be dismissed or or to be completed. 18 years is a long time for both wounds to heal and cases to remain unsolved. Consider this then, if the decision to this was yours personally (and give good consideration to the upheaval caused by the orignal circumstances), then what would be your choice and plan of action?. just curious.
