Brothel owners roaming around scot free, while sex workers languish in rehabilitation homes; Freedom Firm NGO has filed a public interest litigation in the High Court.
Anyone who has been entangled in courts of law and the endless judicial processes, knows that the delivery of justice takes its own sweet, er… bitter time. A Pune NGO called ‘Freedom Firm’, that works in the field of human trafficking, has filed a writ petition in the Bombay High Court regarding delays in the handling of their cases.
The petition filed on January 27, names the Pune Commissioner of Police as Respondent. Greg Malstead, the head of Freedom Firm, said that the writ petition aims to make the police and the judiciary accountable for their leisurely and lax approach to court cases.
