"Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" (Who will guard the guards themselves?)
-Decimus Iunius Iuvenalis (Juvenal)

The resultant furore almost brought the government down, and we can assume that politicians will forever more be aware of the sub judice rule and keep it in mind before holding forth on the subject of the judiciary.
