  1. It is well. We will not preempt the court, since the emergency court process give his legal team to submit a bail application, that could be a precursor to his release.
    I think the tension is easing up and those high up may have started thinking of a truly legal way to do this without creating the impression of naming a dog a bad name in order to kill it.
    I pray that the Almighty Jehovah will grant us all His enduring peace and give the true liberty of men as He planned from the day creation, in Jesus Christ name. Amen
