Restorative justice

The Supreme Court deserves praise for salvaging, to some extent, the lost dignity of former ISRO scientist S. Nambi Narayanan, who was framed in a spy scandal case (Editorial, “Beyond recompense”, September 15). It is a watershed moment in the annals of human rights litigation.

However, no compensation would be adequate for the undue mental agony and stigma suffered by the traumatised scientist for almost a quarter of a century. This is a classic example of the wheels of justice grinding far too slowly.
