Address by Hans Kutscher (25 October 1977)

Address given by Mr Hans Kutscher, President of the Court of Justice, on 25 October 1977 at the swearing-in of the first Members of the Court of Auditors. In his view, if the Court of Justice constitutes the 'legal conscience' of the Community, the Court of Auditors represents its 'financial conscience'; this expression has since become a leitmotif of the Court of Auditors.
