OPPENLÄNDER wins dispute over investigative committee

The Saarland state parliament does not have to amend the composition of the committee of enquiry into the Saarland authorities’ handling of the arson attack of 19 September 1991. It remains the case that only the SPD parliamentary group is represented in the committee of enquiry with three full members and the CDU parliamentary group with two full members. The AfD parliamentary group is only allowed one “permanent advisory member”, who has many rights but no voting rights.

An application by the AfD parliamentary group for a temporary injunction to obtain full member status was rejected by the Saarland Constitutional Court in a decision of 28 July 2023.

Professor Dr. Christofer Lenz and Dr. Henrike Schulte represented the Saarland Parliament.

OPPENLÄNDER regularly represents parliaments and other state bodies in proceedings before constitutional courts.
