Judicial Discretion In DUI Sentencing

The recent amendment to the Road Transportation Act 1987 sees heavier penalties, including a minimal jail term of seven years for driving under the influence and causing injury. We speak to Salim Bashir about his opinion piece on why he thinks this denies the judiciary its discretion, and what impact it will have.
