Judge does not interfere with parliament

Schotte2WILLEMSTAD - The judge does not interfere with disputes in parliament. The leader of the opposition party MFK, Gerrit Schotte had filed a lawsuit after he was kicked out of a meeting in parliament.

Schotte filed the complaint against this dismissal, but the judge indicated that the president of parliament is precisely the one responsible for order in parliament and not the court of justice. The judge even stated that there is the separation of powers (triaspolitica) and that none of the branches can interfere with the other.

Schotte must pay the legal costs of 1,000 guilders.
