August 4, 2016 (Ngerulmud) Defining what an “arrest” and a “speedy trial” terms legally mean was the center of an oral argument presented yesterday at Ngerulmud in the case of Mengeolt vs. ROP, a criminal appeal case before the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court. The outcome of this argument can mean a confessed murderer walking out free or remaining behind bars, sentenced to serve time for Second Degree Murder charge.
