An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Jailed for 70 years for stealing 13p!

There are many bad judgments by the judiciary. But this, in my view, should rank as one of the cruelest and the worst! Read for yourself:

A WOMAN was locked up and “lost” for 70 years after being wrongly accused of stealing 13p. Jean Gambell, 85, was “certified” indefinitely in 1937 over claims she had taken the cash while cleaning at a doctor’s surgery.

The money was found — but Jean still spent 70 years in a maze of care institutions.

    I cant believe this, how a person spent so much time in jail. It’s a virtual slaughter.

    BTW, I am a SAP consultant too. Take care.
