What is wrong with our courts?

Royal Courts of Justice, Belfast
Recent newspaper headlines in Northern Ireland include Woman walks free despite £200,000 property fraud and Suspended sentence for drug-money laundering.
None of the £200,000 has been recovered from the county Tyrone property fraudster, who was given a suspended sentence, and the drug dealer also got a suspended sentence.
Most people will wonder if judges really believe in the punishment fitting the crime.
