German justice system

"The German system has a duty to uncover all the facts of a case in an inquisitorial rather than adversarial format - the judges are involved with both sets of lawyers in trying to figure out what happened, rather than acting as a referee between two opposing sides." [Plea bargains 'could warp German justice'].

The argument is against plea bargains that ought to be discouraged in an adversarial system too.
