More acquittals in Kenya

A Kenyan judge has acquitted a further three men of involvement in the 2002 Mombasa suicide-bombing. As with the previous acquittals, the prosecution had simply failed to make any sort of case. Again, this emphasises the value of civilian prosecutions in protecting the innocent and making sure the police actually do their job, rather than just rounding up the usual suspects and relying on the allegation of "terrorism" to carry the day.
