Spain's judge Garzon in the dock
Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon faces a courtroom once again - but this time, he's the defendant. Garzon faces charges of breaking Spain's amnesty law, which prevents the prosecution of anyone accused of political crimes during the Franco years. The judge was investigating the disappearance of 114,000 people between 1936 and 1975, which he says were crimes against humanity, and therefore not subject to the amnesty law.
