Greek judges to face the bench

Greek judges suspected of corruption will stand trial in a few weeks. Recent revelations of graft inside the country’s judicial system have left the public in deep shock. Justice, veteran politicians used to say, is the last bastion of democracy. When people lose their faith in judges, they are virtually losing their faith in the democratic system. Corruption within the judiciary had reached unprecedented levels. However, the current administration seems to possess the requisite political will to purge Greece’s courthouses of corruption. It was a move that prompted many attacks and reactions. Soon, everything will be over. Justice officials will be called upon to judge their former colleagues. We hope that they will do so in an unbiased manner and without any attempt to cover up the sins of their former peers. Judges and politicians must show zero tolerance toward cases of corruption that are undermining the foundations of our democracy.
