for not catching this sooner. At the same time, it is a well-settled legal principle that just because the responsible authority failed in their duty initially, that does not absolve the suspected party of all alleged wrongdoing. Even with the time lapse, if the legal harm is still continuing then the ordinary rules of limitation don't apply.
If laws have been broken, then the proper mechanisms should be used to bring the lawbreakers to justice. Not what has been going on. Plus, even in Bangladesh, "innocent until proven guilty" applies. Clearly, the media circus has nothing to do with justice.
