19 May Garzon Granted Permission to Work at the ICC
I continue to believe that this is a terrible idea:
Spain’s top judicial panel had suspended Mr Garzon on Friday pending his trial on charges he exceeded his authority by ordering an investigation into mass killings by the forces of former dictator Francisco Franco.
The suspension from his functions as a judge was widely thought in Spain to be an obstacle to a transfer to a foreign court but the judicial panel approved Garzon’s request to spend seven months at The Hague court.
“Legal reasons could not be found to prevent the hiring of the judge as a consultant”, Gabriela Bravo, spokeswoman for the judicial panel told reporters.
If Julian and I agree about something, could we possibly be wrong?
