Produktbeschreibung

The focus of this publication is on issues regarding the definition of Art. 44, 45a of the basic constitutional law (Grundgesetz – GG), the rules of procedure and the parliamentary investigation law. Thereby it is a special contribution to the law of the investigation committee as a whole.

The author comes to the conclusion that, from today’s perspective, the interpretation of Article 45a GG needs to be carried out on the basis of the objective view of the legislator. New historic research results, the parliamentary predecessors of the Defence Committee and the legislative process of the army constitution (Wehrverfassung) reveals that the legislative history provides only limited insight for the interpretation of Art. 45a GG.

In particular, the essay describes the dogmatic distinction between the Defence Committee as an expert committee on the one hand and an investigative committee on the other hand, as suggested by the constitution. While its area of operation as an expert committee is broad, a systematic and teleological interpretation comes to the conclusion that the ‘sharp sword’ of the right of investigation should be limited to the armed forces. These findings are supported by the system of the army constitution as a whole, which provides various instruments and degrees for the exercise of parliamentary control.
In a detailed way, this essay addresses the non-public nature of the meetings of the Defence Committee, including the protection of confidentiality (Geheimschutz). As a result, it is noted that this only grants relative protection against the general public. It cannot be derived from Art. 45a GG that the hearing of evidence needs to be carried out non-publicly a matter of principle.

The author takes a special interest in answering the question how ancillary bodies can support the Defence Committee in carrying out its investigative tasks. In addition to the appointment of subcommittees and an investigation officer, the author especially recommends to resort for this purpose to the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Armed Forces (Wehrbeauftragter).
