Leading German EU law expert to support No campaign

UNIV. PROF. Dr. Karl Albrecht Schachtschneider, Nuremberg (Germany) who led the challenge to the Lisbon Treaty at the German Constitutional Court - the court challenge has resulted in Germany having yet to ratify the Lisbon Treaty - will be visiting Ireland to lend his support to the campaign for a No vote.

He is coming to Ireland at the invitation of Republican Sinn Féin from September 21 to 23.

On September 21 he will address a press conference in Buswell’s Hotel, Molesworth St, Dublin at 12 Noon.

That evening he will be the keynote speaker at a public meeting in Wynn’s Hotel, Middle Abbey St at 7.30pm.

Prof Schachtschneider as an expert in European and Constitutional Law will speak in particular on the new EU-“guarantees” and what they really mean for Ireland and also what are the consequences of the judgment of the German Federal Constitutional Court?

The next day he will travel to Galway where he will address a meeting in the Imperial Hotel, Eyre Square at 8.00pm. The meeting will be chaired by Republican Sinn Féin member of Galway County Council Tomás Ó Curraoin.

Biography of Karl Albrecht Schachtschneider, Nuremberg, Germany

He was Born on July 11, 1940 in Hutten/Pommern (in province of what was then East Germany).

He received a School-leaving certificate in classical languages in 1960 in Berlin.

Studying law at the universities in Berlin, Bonn and Tubingen. In 1963 first, in 1969 second State Certificate in Law at Berlin. 1969 obtaining the degree of Dr Jur at the Free University of Berlin.

In 1986 he was inaugurated in constitutional law and administration and for private and public law of economics at the Special Branch for the Science of Law in Hamburg.

From 1969-80 he was a practising lawyer in Berlin.

1972-78 Professor for Economics at the professional School of Economics in Berlin (evening courses).

1978-89 university professor for the Law of Economics at Hamburg University.

1989-2006 chair-holding Professor of public law at the University of Erlangen-Nurnberg.

1992-95 dean of the faculty for economic and social sciences at the University of Erlangen-Nurnberg.

In numerous books, scientific articles, court proceedings and public speeches he has analysed globalisation and its consequences in a critical way and has stood up all the time firmly for freedom and the civil rights of people in opposition to corporations and the state.

It is due to his several legal actions on EU treaties at the Federal Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe that the President of the Federal Republic of Germany has yet to sign the Lisbon Treaty for ratification in Germany. In Austria he has acted on behalf of a civil rights committee taking legal action.

Prof Schachtschneider gave voluminous written evidence to the constitutional court in Vienna in October 2008 stating why all EU treaties violate the national constitution of the Federal Republic of Austria.
