Water convicts an accused
The five judges of the high court are staring forward high above the accused who is awaiting his fate.
As water fills the judges’ mouths until their individual tilting point, their jaws move and judgment is passed
It requires three of them to speak at the same time until a verdict is reached,
at that point the accused is weighted down until he falls.
The sentence is pronounced. Silence and darkness follow.
As the water is retreating, his weight is lifted..... so he stands up again, light is switched on, water starts flowing, a new trial begins...
