Mr. Justice Michael Hartmann

文/杜祎洁 Du Yijie

法官大人七十高龄,发如雪,大腹便便,面相和善,双颊两坨绯色高原红,眼睛却似鹰般锐利。
在法官席位居高临下的他表情肃穆,铿锵的嗓音在闭塞的法庭里来回撞击。却也偶尔顽童附身,即兴表演。
他始终紧紧攥着用来写判决书的一枝黑漆钢笔,似指挥家般指点江山、挥斥方遒。

“做法官最大的福利在于被尊奉为君主、陛下,外出就餐不必等位,再沉闷的笑话也赢得满堂喝彩。” 黑色幽默在这个老头身上浓墨重彩。
一口英腔的他坚称一个真正的绅士洞悉自己的位置并以尊严相捍卫。三位一体的结构被他视为不可或缺:法治精神、独立的司法机关和媒体。

普通(英美)法系中,法官位于司法机构的金字塔尖,并以高薪和终身制作后盾,分权制衡。
为维护法官的权威,即便烈日灼灼,他们亦穿戴滑稽厚重的假发,那是他们的王冠。这份仪式感贯穿座次井然的法庭,构成了他们的身份象征。
他们厌恶庭审中浮夸的陈词,扼要和逻辑是抽丝剥茧的关键。

然而位高权重难免意味着独孤。
身为法官,夜店自然是明文禁忌。他们常独居一室,言行审慎,不轻易表达意志,试图与外界保持疏离,比如政治。
虽被众人仰视,他却强调法官只有具备同感力才能成为一个完整的法官。“我们亏欠街头的清洁女工和城里的名流富豪一样多。”
面对法律条文解释不明的案例,无罪推定是他们的标准践行。

他早年跌宕,回忆往昔如数家珍、绘声绘色。曾在津巴布韦担任记者、军人和作家,后出任律师、公证人及财产转让经办人。年近不惑辗转来港,历任律政署检察官、高级检察官、副首席检察官。八年后离开政府,加入司法机构。九八年任高院原讼法庭法官,零八年出任上诉法庭法官。三年前退休,留任终审法院非常任法官。
逾二十载法官生涯,他观察到普通法系法官渐趋消褪的病态傲慢,庭审中依旧匮乏的高新技术,以及上位法官对于在职深造的迫切。

被问及白皮书对在港法官爱国爱港的明文规定,他稍作犹豫,态度却斩钉截铁。
“我不喜欢该项规定因为它无关紧要。我的判决并不会影响我爱国与否,反之亦然。我们的法律本身并不涉及政治。”
