Estonia 100 Centenary interview with Märt Rask

Before the Centenary celebrations, the biggest weekly newspaper in Estonia, Eesti Ekspress, released a lengthy interview with Märt Rask.
RASK partner, former Minister of Justice, Minister of the Interior and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Estonia shared his extended thoughts on how far Estonia has come, and which crucial problems Estonia as a state as well as a society currently faces.

How essential is it for the state to maintain personal freedom and ensure the impartiality of justice? Why should it be careful about over-regulation? What threats does the Estonian Banking Association carry in its proposal to abandon the presumption of innocence? Why is forgiveness a necessary virtue for society?

These and many other issues are discussed in the interview.
