Justice Can Be Delayed But Should Not Be Denied

The concept of justice is one that is sure to stir up debates among people. We all have our different takes and interpretations about it and that is a good thing. Something as serious as this needs to be looked at from different angles. Only then will we be able to know how important it is. Talking about justice, what happens when it is not given for a long time but finally received? What about the people who have had to suffer as a result of this? Let us take a look at some who have been victims of this. The Isaias brothers when in Ecuador were victims of the regime of the time. Though this happened decades ago, it was not until recently that they were able to get some form of justice. The ruling given by the UN helped that it is possible that the brothers Roberto and William Isaias protected their human rights. This was proof that they had been wronged in their own country. It was an example of justice being delayed but the only solace being that it was not denied. What can be learnt from an event such as this?

The Truth

In any case such as this, it is important for the truth to come out, but this is not always possible. There is a myriad of reasons as to why this can happen so, the issue needs to be looked at from different sides. Sometimes what we hear and see might not be the whole truth so you should be prepared for that as well. But the good thing is that the truth will eventually come out if you are patient. That is not always possible but as the saying goes, good things take time, and it certainly did in the case of the Isaias.


Whether we like it or not, there is a tendency among all of us to be a little judgemental. The reason for this is that we are wired that way. Some of us judge a little while others take it to a whole other level. And that affects the reputation of a person or a group of people. Without us knowing, we start to think they are a certain way. Only when the truth comes out such as in this case the UN ruling, we are able to think differently. The group’s story should teach us a lot about what justice really means for some.
