Mixed views on the abolishment of juries

Less than a month after one of the longest criminal trials in this country ended, the chief justice is making a passionate plea for the abolition of jury trials.

His speech got the support of the attorney general, but one senior attorney is calling the proposal foolish.

The debate was sparked at the opening of the law term today, where the chief justice also defended his overseas travels.
