(3)(c) ECHR. Therefore, the right (only) goes as far as is necessary in the interests of the 
administration of justice and the accused or defendant is unable to pay for a defence counsel 
from his own pocket.” 
Another example of the State Court referring to the ECHR and to its interpretation by the 
ECtHR can be found in the State Court's practice that the right to defence applies in criminal 
proceedings but not in proceedings for mutual legal assistance in criminal matters.” In StGH 
2008/37, the State Court makes reference to "the Strasbourg practice" in this context"? In 
fact, this practice refers to an extradition case”, on the basis of which one can argue a fortiori 
that if there is no right of defence even in the case of extradition, there is no right of defence 
even less in other measures of mutual legal assistance that come with much less interference 
with personal rights. In view of the dynamic development of proceedings for official and 
legal assistance in Europe and of the necessity to observe the fairness of criminal proceedings 
n 54 
"as a whole” ‘”, this example in particular leads to the question to what extent this practice 
will be subject to change sooner or later, be it either by the ECtHR or the State Court.” 
The examples presented are to illustrate the influence of the ECHR on Liechtenstein doctrine 
on fundamental rights: as a result of ECHR-friendly practice of the State Court, the 
Liechtenstein fundamental rights are interpreted in the light of the comparable rules of the 
ECHR. The extensive limits contained in the fundamental rights laid down in the 
Liechtenstein Constitution are substantially restricted by interpretation oriented at the practice 
of the ECtHR. 
On the other hand, the more extensive guarantees of the Liechtenstein charter of fundamental 
rights are not given up; rather, the ECHR forms a minimum standard for the protection of
