Albus Dumbledore wrote Charter of Rights?
I just don't find it realistic that Wizengamot predates the Ministry and have existed since back in the days of the medieval Wizards' Council, yet the accused did not have the right to have the support of anyone outside the court before the 1900's. I know it was in the script, but I believe there is a reason that it was not included in the final draft of the film. It is non-sensical. I just don't buy it. I mean, seriously, during the witch hunts, a relative was permitted to defend the accused. If you look it up, you will also discover that in Medieval times, Europeans even put ANIMALS on trial, often providing them with all the SAME RIGHTS as people, including the right to a lawyer and a fair trial. (Although I don't know what they call lawyers back then).
Okay, you can argue that 'this is the wizarding world', but I refuse to believe that every wizard concerned with the wizarding justice system or magical high-court of law predating Dumbledore was too retarded to make their court function like a court. I simply don't buy it. As already said, it was removed from the final script for a reason, and that is, apparantly, due to the absurdity of it. Ninclow 06:04, April 26, 2015 (UTC)
