The Minister of Justice has resigned. The president of the Court of Cassation did indeed send an expanded note to the Speaker of the House today. It concludes that "bearing in mind that my investigations have been somewhat limited, I have not found legal proof of an attempt to impede the course of justice, but there are undoubtedly important indications in that direction." The letter is scathingly critical of the Minister of Justice, and almost as directly critical of the prime minister. It's difficult to believe that Leterme can survive; but it's also difficult to believe that he is still there!
