Veteran Lawyer Says Maryland Judicial System 'Polarized'
By John Bropleh, Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, Feb 13 (LINA) - An 80 year-old lawyer in Harper, Maryland County, Cllr. Fulton Yancy, has classified the judicial system in the county as being polarized by hate and prejudice.
 

He said the system has also deprived citizens  access to justice in the county.

Speaking at the recent of the formal opening of the February Term of the Fourth Judicial Circuit Court in Harper, Cllr. Yancy alleged that citizens on many occasions were accused of involvement in ritualistic activities without convincing proof.

The senior Maryland County lawyer, who was once accused, told the court that their homes were unlawfully searched and were subjected to false prosecution.

He told the Presiding Judge Tiklo Konton to use the opportunity afforded him to dispense transparent justice to the people of Maryland County.

Speaking also at the ceremony, Acting Superintendent Henry Cole appealed to the judge to speedily try 30 inmates who have been languishing behind bars for more than three terms without trial.
