In this country people need to be found guilty before convicted.

There is a huge gulf between someone being arrested & being charged and an enormous gulf between someone being charged & prosecuted. If it wasn't for the court system the police / government would just arrested anyone they wanted and put them in prison.

Reading the above story it would appear that the police don't currently have enough evidence to charge them let alone get a conviction.
