We have seen politicians and business leaders being handcuffed in front of the world. In 2017, South Korean President Park Geun-hye was arrested and handcuffed after being impeached on corruption charges. In 2020, former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak was also handcuffed after being convicted of corruption.
These events send shockwaves through their respective countries and the wider world.
However, we must also be mindful of the limitations of these events. The arrest and handcuffing of a powerful man is just the beginning of a long and often complex legal process. It does not guarantee justice or accountability, and there are many obstacles and challenges that victims and survivors must overcome in order to see their abusers brought to justice.
Moreover, we must also be aware of the potential for these events to be exploited for political gain or media sensationalism.
