In normal hearing Disciplinary Committee only cases where the notifier is a client, counterparty or someone in a different way are touched by it. But the Secretary-General and the Board have the possibility to take the initiative themselves to a case, which occurred in this case.
- This will be handled in exactly the same way as in other cases, and the lawyer may make a statement. Normally it takes a case about three months to process, says Anne Ramberg.
Anne Ramberg has previously been critical of Göran Lambertz action in the Quick-debate, and said in september TT that it is "perfectly obvious" that one can not be both justices and "private detectives" at the same time.
