Justice Delayed is Justice Denied

Justice is a rather vague term, fabricated by society to incorporate a sense of fairness in relations between individuals, amongst themselves and in their interaction with the State. “Ubi jus ibi remedium”, a basic doctrine in law stands as the very embodiment of the prevailing sense of justice that every human society seeks to secure for its inhabitants. The reciprocity of a legal right and the restitution or restoration of said right in the manner of a remedy is the primary implication of the doctrine. In simple words, a right and a remedy must ideally coexist in order for justice to be imparted fairly. But idealism throughout the years has proven to be a myth and the remedy in most occasions has proven to be an obstruction rather than an aid to justice.
