“( The chief Justice and our whole Judiciary walked from the Courthouse up to the doors of the Parliament house, while people sang hyms of prayer. His Honour the Chief Justice tried to open the door, which had been locked by our caretaker Government. I cried as this happened. Everyone around me was crying. I do not have enough words to describe the feeling that overcame me at this moment in time. But what came through my head was that this was the last and final insult to the rule of law. Locking the doors of the peoples house to everyone including the Judiciary was a symbolic of our final descent to lawlessness. And I cried as I realised that.)”
