As readers have different backgrounds and interests, and as the
material itself may seduce to a constricted view lost in details
it is essential to understand the overall context.
So an introduction with some reflections regarding the subject should be offered.
This page shifted to the EU, originally it started with the German system of justice, its condition leading to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and related EU bodies.
A judicial system, and especially one on top, has the superior task to enforce constitutional rights respective conditions. Such rights should protect citizens against administrative powers, meaning intrusions from administrative systems cutting off individual freedom.
Such acting should be guaranteed by administrative bodies by themselves, if not it is finally the task of the highest courts such as the (national) Federal Constitutional Court and the EU-Courts to enforce correct conditions.
Any functioning Constitution requires the administration and especially the judicial system to work according to the laws, a basic constitutional condition.
Anything else falls back into feudal conditions.
It should be noted that persons may have changed, but the system is the same, not getting better either - on the contrary the matrix is self-organising. In this respect this documentation remains up-to-date.
