“Let us altogether observe a serene moment of silence in honour of our so dear departed ‘Reason’ with its partner ‘Will Of The People’ both fallen in their battle defending ‘Legality’ in search for ‘Democracy’.. May they rest in everlasting peace”.
An expression like “The Moral Issue” is by now completely void.. Empty.. Hollow.. Useless.. It is not anymore quite sufficient in any way to describe the cultural, political, ethical, or even semantic devastation of a Political Party that have nothing of his own to say about anything, so it borrows the exact same words of its presumed adversaries or opponents.
Like “It has become obvious that there is an urgent need to reform our ‘politicised’ Juridical System”; today they, that Political Party joining his presumed opponents’ theorem, are all shouting out loud calling for the urgent priority and the absolute necessity to “Review The Juridical Bar’s overall performance in order to set the required structural and functional reforms”.
And they will agree to promote, through their well paid servile media, the French system as ‘The’ example to follow.. Whereas the entire nationwide organisational structure of the General Prosecutor’s Department depend totally and report solely to the Government.. Well, how strange! Wasn’t that the exact example adopted ever since the 1923 constitution?
Meaning that the entire national investigative organ, while being an integral functional part of the Juridical Authority whose main task is to control the Executive (Presidency & Government) Authority’s performance and adherence to the law; is at the same time the loyal subordinate to the very subject (Presidency & Government) of its main task.. Is the ‘do/don’t’ dependant of the Executive Authority.. And as if that is not enough, moreover the Appeal Magistrates are on their turn judged by a Special Disciplinary Court consisted in two thirds by politicians.
If that could be applied in a country like France, which provided us with the first complete manual for how to organise and lead a people’s revolution, and bring it in time to fulfill and achieve its objectives. It took the French Revolution’s legislators almost a century to mature, in the fertile grounds of Secularism, the exemplary French Code. A century to develop a nation’s education and to evolve its civil culture. That’s why the Juridical System is well founded upon the solid understanding of right and wrong; the sound observation to duties/rights equation; and the undistorted comprehension of the responsibilities anchoring the Public Service.
It is a must here to honestly and objectively observe that our political life at the time (from the late 19th century till the second world war of the 20th) sprang up by strong parties competing among each other in competitive rivalry. It is equally just and as well imperative that we’d admit the fact that those days’ politicians were another breed of intellectual Élite Politique, elevated and educated according to a sound and well rooted civil and moral traditions guided their ways; whether in Parliament, in Government, or in the Administration.. And the press made its way of sufferance and sacrifices to inform and educate.
‘Review’ in order to ‘Reform’ of the juridical system, in my opinion, is a bluntly organised act of demolition targeting a main fundament of a democracy: The Separation between the institutional powers and the Autonomy of the Authorities. This should be the issue put in discussion.. Will our ‘intellectuals’ move this time?? Somewhere surely there is an Egyptian Jean Jacques Rousseau.. and I call on him, wherever he (or she) might be, to come forward and do his/her part.
Otherwise we will be celebrating the requiem sermon (highlighted here on top) of our dead means for a better end: a future embraced and protected by Legality.
Pass On The Word.
You want Justice Reforms? Take this:…then it will be said that “they have only put him in the cage, and there is always the ‘Presumption of Innocence’, let us wait trustfully the Supreme Court’s judgement pronounced at the third grade of the procedures within 12 or 15 years”!!!!!!!!!!
