President of Supreme Court: Politicians Should Respect Judges

Geert Corstens, the president of the Supreme Court, has called on politicians to show respect for the role of the judge. He pleaded for this because trust in judges has declined in recent years. There is more and more public criticism by politicians on judgments but they should at least show respect in the way the express their opinions. Corstens added that the fact that the media give short and sharp summaries of verdicts also means that the public does not accept them without criticism.
