The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and the judiciary as a whole, are deeply disturbed by the statement made by Martin Helme, a member of the Riigikogu, at a meeting on 20 March in which he attacked the judges of Tallinn Circuit Court in relation to their judicial activities.
The first Badges of Honour of the Courts were issued at the judicial plenary of this year. The recipients were the Tartu County Court Judges, Madis Kägu and Andrus Miilaste; and Justice of the Supreme Court, Eerik Kergandberg.
Kersti Kaljulaid, the President of the Republic of Estonia, has decided to bestow the 4th Class Order of the White Star on the Tartu County Court Judge, Andrus Miilaste; and on the Tallinn Circuit Court Judge, Ivi Kesküla.
