Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I had a frightening discussion with an expert in the Philosophy of Law recently.

Most people assume justice is a moral concept. But in legal terms it's considered by many lawyers and judges to be purely procedural.

So justice is considered served if due process is followed, even if the result is a moral nonsense.

This explains a lot about both politics and law, IMO.
