Hello, marcopolo, you wrote: M> the High percent of verdicts of "not guilty" in some countries using a so-called case law, M> is a sign or a confused consequence, or - bribability of judicial system (not specific judges, namely the system allowing for money to leave from punishment). M> As think, what factor prevails? The countries with a case law is, as a rule, the Anglo-Saxon countries. In the remaining countries of the world the right, as a rule, not case. It would be desirable to learn about percent of verdicts of "not guilty" in the countries with not case the right. P.S. It would be desirable, that at us in Russia the percent of verdicts of "not guilty" raised. Would cease to put for "excess of necessary self-defense" and other similar nonsense.
