A regrettable individual case, he can not explain. So Brandenburg of justice announced Minister Stefan Ludwig from the Left, the dismissal of the Ex-NPD-politician, and a suspected Arsonist Maik Schneider from custody. Previously, the Brandenburg upper regional court had ordered the release because of "preventable and attributable to the state delays, the Procedures had" led to the excessive length of detention. Schneider in Potsdam before the court, because he should have fired in 2015, a gymnasium, which was provided as a refugee accommodation. Nine and a half years, he has, and because of further offences. However, the Federal court reversed the judgment. Now is renegotiated, and many are outraged. The confidence in the rule of law has been shaken. Where would we be, if criminals come because of delayed procedure free? A Minister of justice, declares that he cannot explain.
Regrettable. Because it would be to explain something. For example, the Ex-NPD man, has to be considered even though admitted their guilt, to a final judgment innocent. Accordingly, detention is a detention for a potentially Innocent man. And because their purpose the securing of the method, it is also pretty hard. According to the law, you may take only six months. Exceptions must be specifically justified. The European court of human rights calls "very compelling reasons", if you want to take more than two years.

looks about he, the individual, can not explain to the Minister of justice. It is, unfortunately, more often than not, courts pre-trial detainees let out because of the excessive length of the detention period. It is annoying. It is always a scandal? Or it is not a scandal, if you can do it, in spite of the excessive length of duration and delayed procedure? Of such individual cases, there is likely to be some, only nobody knows it except the parties Concerned and their lawyers, and no one reported about it. Offenders or those which are kept only as a threat to be interesting. Not if you are sitting behind bars. In this respect, you can see it also differently: The court of appeal has strengthened the rule of law. A justice Minister should be able to explain.
