    • Judicial independence
      • Judicial independence is where a judge can make decisions impartially and soley
      • 2) Immunity from prosecution
      • Within judicial independence judges aren't involved in parliamentary law making and full time judges cannot be members of parliament . The supreme court was created in 2009 to emphasis separation between the judiciary and the legislature.
      • 4)Independence from the executive
    • This allows judges to make a judgement without fearing dismissal. Superior judges can be removed by monarchs whilst inferior judges by the Lord chancellor.
  • Allows judges to be independent in their judgement without fearing repression as in Serros V Moore
    • 2) Immunity from prosecution
  • This protects the citizens against the gov under S.3 of the constitutional reform act 2005. Where by the lord chancellor + other ministers mustn't seek judicial influence and must stick by independence of the judiciary.
    • 4)Independence from the executive
  • This emphasizes how judges must be impartial when making decisions and not trying cases they may be interested in. In Pinochet case concerning human rights violations it was discovered the judge was an unpaid director of amnesty international.
    • 5) Independence from the case
