Former President Joseph Estrada called the Sandiganbayan that convicted him of plunder (while acquitting him and others of perjury), a “kangaroo court”.
A kangaroo court or kangaroo trial, sometimes likened to a drumhead court-martial or Drumhead trial, is a sham legal proceeding or court. Kangaroo courts are judicial proceedings that deny due process in the name of expediency. The outcome of such a trial is essentially made in advance, usually for the purpose of providing a conviction, either by going through the motions of manipulated procedure or by allowing no defense at all.-(Wikipedia)
“So what do you call the lawyers and judges involved in this kangaroo court?” No answer.”May kangaroo pala sa Pinas?”
“Took him 6 years to say that, the kangaroo thing”
“Sali mo sila erap sa mountaineering group nyo. Mahilig pala sa outdoors yan. Me alam sa kangaroo” Di pwede kasi bawal ang me criminal record sa amin!”
