Paedophile Judge Advises Supreme Court on Paedophilia (this is how progressive Europe has gotten)
"Who is better to judge a pedophile's miscarriage of justice case Than A convicted Pedophile ?"
"These Europeans are totally Big Time All Screwed Up !
MAASTRICHT, - Former judge Fokke Fernhout is part of a university research team looking into a possible miscarriage of justice in a child abuse case. This is striking as he was convicted of possessing child pornography himself. Fernhout is involved in a project at the University of Maastricht to examine whether reasonable doubt has been overlooked by judges in criminal cases. He is one of the researchers who will shortly produce a report about the case of a man who claims to have been wrongly convicted of child abuse. This man hopes that the study will provide him with...snip
Neither Fernhout nor Peter van Koppen, the supervisor of the university's Gerede Twijfel (Reasonable Doubt) project, was unwilling to comment, according to De Telegraaf. University of Maastricht Dean A. Heringa, however, said that he saw no problems in Fernhout's role in the research. "Fokke is entirely able to make an objective judgement. Moreover, he has not been irreversibly convicted in his own case; an appeal to the Supreme Court is still in progress".
Fernhout was vice president of the court in Maastricht when he was found to possess a substantial collection of child pornography of an extreme nature in 2001. Videotapes and CD-ROMs with very explicit material were found under the floor of his house by a painter.
Fernhout was found guilty in July by the appeal court in The Hague, which did not impose a sentence however, partly because the judges said media attention for his case had harmed his reputation. That verdict was the result of many court cases in which the sentence on Fernhout gradually became lower and lower. Initially the OM also suspected him of sexually abusing his foster son but it dropped this charge.
