Is the Judge the Custodian of Liberties ?

Though he is called the custodian of individual liberties in our Constitution,
the judge is in fact a more ambivalent figure. On the one
hand, the extension of his domain of control, encouraged mainly
by the European Court of Human Rights, has visibly improved the
defence of liberties ; on the other hand, two threats, only superficially
antagonistic, are represented by the disputable and often arbitrary use
of his powers by the judge or by a restricted use of these powers, either
deliberately or because of the lack of material means.
