Kunast calls for agreement in dispute over nsu trial
"I personally understand the anger about the access regulations for media representatives," kunast told the dpa news agency in berlin. But the possible consequences for the procedure had to be considered. "A court that changes a legally still defensible decision in response to public pressure and scolding risks further consequences," they stressed. This could be bias motions by the defense or a revision based on.
"It is therefore of little use to keep renewing criticism, and other constitutional bodies should certainly not be allowed to put independent courts under pressure or even issue instructions," said kunast, referring to the recent push by several members of the bundestag who want to publicly persuade the munich higher regional court to relent with a parliamentary appeal. "The principles that we always advocate for due process of law should apply to all of us – also and especially to these offenders," she warned. Any criticism must be moderate.
