More on les Petits Juges

I expressed concern yesterday about the proposal to replace the juge d'instruction with the juge de l'instruction, which may reduce the independence of the justice system. An anonymous commenter calls attention to four interesting articles on this theme, here, here, here, and here. Two of these articles also indicate why one needs to worry about the independence of state television networks, another point I raised yesterday. Thanks to Anonymous for the leads.

STILL MORE from Eolas here.

Apparently there's a commission in charge of reforming the justice system. Two prominent members publicly quit because they president has obviously already made a decision and they do not appreciate being played for fools.
