Glarner Winkelried fighting the Kesb

Wälä Huser, the 62-Year-old in his home Canton of Glarus is called, sounds like a SVP politician, when he talks about the child and adult protection authority (Kesb). "Innocent people are harassed and bullied," he says, and talks by authorities arbitrariness, abuse of power, of "simple civil servants", the intervention in the most sensitive fundamental rights.

but He is not SVP-politicians, but early retired Editor, for over 30 years he has worked in Newspapers, most recently in the "Sunday look". In Glarus, he was the chief judge, guardianship of the President and the district administrator of the CSP, the left wing of the CVP.

He had always seen itself as a Linker, said Walter Hauser, was kicked out of school and I dropped out of the military. He had fought against authority and tyranny. Now he fights side by side with the SVP national councillor Pirmin Schwander for the removal of the Kesb . In the spring of 2018, they have launched an Initiative, in the Committee of the Hauser sits, which requires that in the case of inability of a Person, the family is responsible.

"As a special-purpose Association"

"is best, if the families solve their problems themselves," says Hauser. "As soon as someone intervenes, there is double the noise." The Kesb will help in many cases, and appreciated, counts in his eyes too little, measured in terms of the injustice that he perceives. Today's child and adult protection law, is the largest design in the Swiss law. No other authority has such far-reaching competences, where the citizens were affected in their basic rights so strong.

the objection that the Kesb is professionally set up in contrast to the previous guardianship authority, in the Baker and Mechanic in evening meetings had the fate of the families, countered: "The guardianship authority was, after all, democratic legitimacy, the members were elected. The Kesb is organized like a waste Association. It is a state unworthy of it."

Hauser has increased in his rage against the authority. When he speaks, rants, and gestures. Anyway, he is very immediately and directly. Also friendly and extroverted, but also folksy, without ADO, without the Habitus of the post-doctoral lawyers, he is.

He is so angry, because he himself has had bad experiences with authority – that is to say, actually, it was his wife. A few years ago they moved together to the Walensee, he, the woman and her son from a previous marriage. "There were disputes within the usual limits between the woman and her Ex-husband," says Hauser. It went right to the visit. One day, Kesb had been officials in front of the door, to a message of the father, and later, the Kesb have decided that the Boy should spend half his time with the father. Alternating custody is the model that is actually useful, if parents take the same position in the family work seriously.

"Without me my wife would have been lost."Walter Hauser

"Nothing against alternating custody," says Hauser. But it would have been in her case, impossible, says he, the son would have been between the two cantons of commuting, between Weesen, SG, and Glarus. In addition, the parents could communicate poorly.

But not the substantive decision has upset him, but the way. How officials come to little qualified for the work, such as the Hauser place, and decide, zack, you have no Chance. Hauser denied for his wife took the process of three years and at the end of the St. Gallen court of appeal of the mother law gave. "Without me, you would have been fine for me, as a foreigner, anyway," he says. Without in-depth legal knowledge or enough money, you have no Chance. Destitute Affected receive free legal assistance, but Hauser does not apply: "how do you know that?"

The case of Anna Göldi

fight, He will with all our strength for the Kesb Initiative, says Hauser. The collection period ends in November. It wouldn't be the first Time that Hauser eats a thing. Media to be effective fight for the rehabilitation of Anna Göldi, the maid was the end of the 18th century. Century, was beheaded in Glarus, as a supposed witch. The government found it unnecessary and pointless to rehabilitate the woman about 200 years later, what Hauser reported by the network mobilized and the media in the whole German-speaking Switzerland over the relentless Glarner Executive. Finally, the rehabilitation took place – at the behest of the chief administrative officer. Hauser had won.

"Up to the time of determination"

In the Canton of opinions about it – and also Walter Hauser polarized. His persistence have paid off so many Times, says, "Southeast Switzerland"-Editor, Daniel Fischli. Sometimes, however, Hauser was persistent up to the time of determination. "And sometimes his ideas are thought out enough. For example, this Kesb-Initiative. It assumes that the families which are to apply instead of the Kesb, work. However, they do not in most cases."

Positive it evaluates Hauser's contribution to the Canton's history, with works such as "bitterness and tears", which is the suffering of the emigrants in the 19th century. Century, describes the hero-myth of the courageous and adventurous Glarus emigration debunked. "For the self-image of the Canton of this book is Central," says Fischli. In another book, "when In doubt, against the woman," revealed Hauser, such as women in criminal processes, hardener, were evaluated as men.

He struggles against authorities and judicial arbitrariness, Hauser says. Therefore, he had founded the Anna Göldi Foundation, which is dedicated to the victims of arbitrariness. Also in the Board of Trustees, there is sometimes dispute, says Res Schlittler, a long-standing working with Hauser, the desperate sometimes to him and admired how he gets the curve, with the people gutstellt.

Somehow, he got always the curve, says Hauser. Then, too, in the school, as it has looked, as the doctor's son from Näfels would get nothing more on the series. Because they have deceived themselves.
