A judge allowed two Muslim solicitors accused of trying to cheat the legal system to hide behind a cloak of secrecy for ‘cultural reasons’, the Daily Mail can disclose.

He banned reporting of the case of Asha Khan, 30, and her brother Kashif, 34, to prevent them allegedly being shamed in the eyes of their community.

In the latest farce involving secret justice, the pair were told they could enjoy the court’s protection because members of their family would pass judgment if the case was reported.

After almost a year of court appearances and legal argument, Miss Khan has been convicted of attempting to pervert the course of justice, while her brother was acquitted of the charge.

Hmm... so, a Judge would seek to keep the ID of the defendant secret to avoid embarrassment, but if the life of the defendant and his family are at threat from religious extremists it is OK to name him!

I thought part of punishing people for their actions was to shame them in the eyes of their peers.

It should be viewed as outrageous that western laws protect some, but hurt others.  Who decides what the public needs to know?  I guess we just need to accept the fact that there are people in the court systems that know how things should be.  Let's just keep paying their wages, I guess.

Speaking as a British person I can say that Britain and its people have only themselves to blame for this.

We let people move here and set up their own communities and turned a blind eye to them not wanting to integrate and let them set up their own laws.  

Now a heavy price is being paid in resentment on both sides.  Nobody is happy regardless of what side of the fence they sit on.
