OPEN JUSTICE UNBOUND?


LORD NEUBERGER OF ABBOTSBURY
MASTER OF THE ROLLS

"We live in a country which is committed to the rule of law. Central to that commitment is that justice is done in public - that what goes on in court and what the courts decide is open to scrutiny1. This is not a new fundamental principle. In 1829, for instance, Bayley J in Daubney v Cooper said this,

‘. . . we are all of the opinion, that it is one of the essential qualities of a Court of Justice that its proceedings should be in public, and that all parties who may be desirous of hearing what is going on, if there be room in the place for that purpose, - provided they do not interrupt the proceedings and provided there is no specific reason why they should be removed – have the right to be present for the purpose of hearing what is going on

The full report is right here....

Until Legal certainty is given back and tribunal decisions are not blatantly biased and bigoted, I remain of the view that there is no rule of law, or the rule of law applies to some and not others.


So when I think of a Judge doing "justice", I still see this...........,
