Handelsblatt Explains As party politics seeps into decisions about who sits on the top courts of the US and Poland, Germany defends its reputation for judicial independence. But even here, the lines are more blurred that it might seem. Published on November 9, 2018 2:51 pm “Germany should send a clear signal for the independence of the courts,” Renate Künast, a senior lawmaker in Germany’s Green Party, recently told German media. She was referring to the heavily politicized appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States, which appalled many Germans.

Despite enjoying the better of the opening half-hour, Virgil van Dijk’s close-range header after Ryan Babel’s effort had come back off the crossbar paved the way for a record-breaking 3-0 Dutch win. Late second-half goals from Memphis Depay and Van Dijk’s Liverpool team-mate Georginio Wijnaldum registered Holland’s biggest win over their neighbours and a first in a competitive match since 1992. It also meant Germany have gone three competitive matches without scoring for the first time in their history and are winless after two Nations League matches. “We played very well at the beginning, created … [Read more...] about Holland defeat tough to take, says Germany’s Timo Werner
