Full quote from Scarlett Keeling lawyer on delay

The trial of two men accused of causing Scarlett's death has been running for two and a half years.

Unless the system provides enough energy into the judicial system, providing them with enough resources, enough judges, one cannot expect that things should be done in the time which people expect it to be done and this inordinate delay in the criminal justice system erodes peoples faith in the criminal justice system.

– Vikram Varma, lawyer for Scarlett's mother
