Court case is dragging too long

I did not follow closely the trial of the people who were charged for causing a disturbance in Hong Lim Park while making their protest for the return of the CPF.

It seemed to be dragging a very long time - over several months.

This must be causing taxpayers a lot of money, for the salaries of the judges, prosecutors. lawyers (for the prosecution and defense) and court employees.

Do we really need to drag the case for so long? Where there difficult issues that needed to be resolved?

I get the impression that Singapore has become very inefficient and costly in many areas. It seems to include the conduct of court cases.
