RECONSIDERATION OF JCD 1235
The practice of the Council is to not explain themselves outside of their sessions and their rulings. That sometimes leaves appellants and other interested parties at a disadvantage because they are given no guidance as to how they should have approached the Council or what their options are outside of the Council.
Associates in Advocacy tries to provide some of that kind of information through these posts on our blog and in our website at HYPERLINK "http://www.aiateam.org/" http://www.aiateam.org/. It happens that we are having a workshop on advocacy which will include a couple hours of discussion around dealing with the Judicial Council and its rules and procedures. There are others, including former Council members, who could also be worthwhile consultants for those trying to get their concerns before the Council.
Linkages may need to be established with participants in the African activist group in order to help them work through the system. With the electronic revolution which now crosses the globe and facilitates linking up, it is only a matter of time before such consulting will begin.
In the meantime, such denials for reconsideration offer no help to the appellants, especially those overseas.
