Grand Duke Views Magna Carta

Photo: Lëtzebuerger Journal
The Magna Carta is currently on exhibit at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg as part of worldwide festivities to celebrate its 800th anniversary. This morning, Grand Duke Henri went to see the charter drawn up in 1215 to protect the rights of free English subjects from the King John of England and thus essentially laying the foundations for the rule of common law. The Grand Duke was accompanied by the new President of the European Court of Justice, Koen Lenaerts, European Court judge François Biltgen and Marc Jaeger, judge at the General Court of the European Union.
