Just a quick note : Luzius Wildhaber actually comes from Switzerland, not Austria!

Una, the speech is half in french half in english. It is the way the court works, perhaps wrongly.

Lorenzo Zucca said...

And yes, apologies, Wildhaber is Swiss. I'll correct this

It's about 80% in French, and 20% in Elnglish. Grrrrr.
