  1. This is the sad reality: if a country’s judiciary is perceived as corrupt, it is because some in the legal system aid and abate. You get rid of a corrupt judge and it will be replaced by another. Therefore, there is a lot replacing to do from top to bottom, and I am not talking only about a judiciary. Besides, promoting ADR as if it almost were the answer to corrupt judges is hardly the answer. Few would believe it; few believe it. ADR can hardly wash dirt so layered, so hardened, so embedded.
