Abstract

A broad competence is conferred upon judges in their capacity as public-office holders, including achieving the fair settlement of criminal and civil relationships and solving disputes between private persons and public authorities by way of administrative proceedings. In administering justice, judges are public officials who have a task to ensure that what today's society understands by a fair trial. In today's democratic world, the right to a fair trial should be understood not only as access to justice and judicial protection in criminal, civil and administrative proceedings, but also as compliance of courts with the principles of law, including those of fairness and impartiality, and, more broadly, the legitimacy of judges as public officials. Judges are not abstract public officials, which means that they must have impeccable reputation and adhere to high moral standards.
