It's been revealed that the trial of Oscar Pistorius is one of a pilot scheme where the entire case is run by criminals. Not only is the lead officer under suspicion of murder, the judge, jury and all the legal staff are suspects or convicted criminals - with most of the jury watching the trial via video link to their prison cells.
"It saves a fortune.", enthused a government spokesman. "We got the idea from the UK plan to train the Afghan army to police itself. And, as no-one's ever been convicted, there's big savings in prison costs as well."
