Jury duty around the world

I’m serving on a jury today. Well, actually I don’t know if I’m serving yet. Right now it’s in wait & see mode. I know a lot of people do anything to get out of serving, and I certainly have in the past.

Today, I’m feeling patriotic. We spent the summer watching Libya, Egypt, Afghanistan & Syria fight for democracy and freedoms we take for granted. I look at North Korea and China and guess that people there aren’t getting a fair trial by a jury of their peers.

What a privilege to live in a country that touts a fair trial for all citizens as a basic right. So I’ll stop whinging and do my day or days of service.

But I find I’m curious about other democratic countries that have a fair legal process? Is there such a thing as Jury duty? I know I have readers around the world, so come out of hiding and say hi. And tell me, do you have to serve on juries? What is the process?
