I think this is a first.  The Chief Military Judge of Canada is facing a number of charges, specifically:

 

  • One count of wilfully making a false entry in a document signed by him that was required for an official purpose or required for an official purpose
  • One count of wilfully making a false statement in a document signed by him that was required for an official purpose
  • One count of fraud under $5,000 contrary to the Criminal Code of Canada
  • One count of an act of a fraudulent nature
  • One count of conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline

I think this is unprecedented, at least I've never heard of something similar happening anywhere.

Judges being held responsible for falsifying documents and faking evidence etc is not unheard of, but rare. As we say in germany: one crow does not pick anothers eye.

 

 

If they can prove it properly in court the judge better get punished adequately instead of a nice lowest possible sentence. To encourage the others not stepping out of line.
