Default 6 people sentenced to death for no good reason!

Okay, the jist is this. 6 health care workers were accused and tried in court of intentionally infecting patients at a hospital with AIDS. Scientific findings have shown that the strain of the virus the patients were infected with was already present in the hospital environment before the workers showed up and was in fact spread by poor conditions before the arrival of these workers.

However, this evidence was not admitted into the courts, for reasons unknown. The courts, with no evidence to back up their claims, have found the 6 guilty and have sentenced them to death.

This is a witch hunt, pure and simple, and I'm shocked it hasn't been all over the news outraging everyone. Why isn't anyone DOING anything?

Third world countries and justice... the two do not often have much in common.

Yeah, courts in places like that don't really care too much about things like "proof", "evidence", and "the truth".

Well... yeah, this is bad, but miscarriages of justice are so, so common in those parts of the world that it's hard to single out any one incident as "worthy of special attention"...

While often this is simply "things that the just don't get prosecuted" (for instance, rape/sexual abuse, in a lot of places), sometimes it does become in law... for instance China executes more people than any other nation in the world, by a huge margin... the actual numbers aren't publicized, though.

Not true. See: China, or traditional Central Asian and African cultures (that still have force, unlike such beliefs in the first world... we don't execute people for witchcraft anymore here, for instance...) that have little to do with religion...

This article is a good example.

How does that in any way disagree with the idea that Muslim nations are about as close to the Spanish Inquisition as you're likely to find in the modern world?

And is this really a "debate"? This is set in stone, it's obvious they are not guilty and this is a travesty of justice.

The nation in question, Libya, is quite the Islam hangout.

Yes, and justice in many Islamic countries is in very bad shape in virtually every way, but the point is that they are not the only places with such problems...
