Scarlett Keeling case: Children’s court verdict likely today

PANAJI: The Goa children's court is likely to pronounce its order in the death case of British teenager Scarlett Keeling on September 23.
The final arguments in the 2008 case concluded last month. Two locals, Samson D'Souza and Placido Carvalho, are facing trial in the alleged case of drugging, sexually abusing and leaving the British teenager to die on Anjuna beach, nine years ago.
The defence counsel had argued the victim's death was on account of accidental drowning. The case had drawn a lot of negative publicity for the Congress-led government then, raising questions on woms.

  1. Scarlett's case is just one of many as there have been many similar cases like Denyse Sweeney, Stephen Bennett, Andy Rodick, Felix Dahl, Caitanya Holt and many more. None of the cases were ever investigated fully and some are still on going in courts after many years. We, the families of the victims like Fiona keep fighting for justice for our lost loved ones in Goa. Every season there are more of these kind of cases which the authorities in Goa seem to ignore completely. If the case makes it to the court the quilty are let free....always the same outcome. There is no justice in Goa for anyone.
