No favoritism

No favoritism

Man: Cleptocractic republic? No way! I stand at the forefront of eradicating corruption! There will be no favoritism (lit no matter what ‘feathers’ you have’)! There will be no remissions for corruptors!

Kid: It depends Mr! On what feathers... and whose feathers!

Lawmakers – many of whom have colleagues eligible for parole – reacted angrily to a Justice Ministry decision to tighten sentence remission requirements following a public outcry over generous remissions granted to politically connected corruption convicts.
