The concept of an independent judiciary is said to have originated in ancient Greece, where the role of judges was to interpret laws and act as impartial arbiters in disputes. This idea was later adopted by the Roman Empire and eventually became a cornerstone of the European legal tradition. The principle of an independent judiciary was further developed during the Enlightenment, when philosophers such as John Locke and Montesquieu argued for the separation of powers between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government. They believed that an independent judiciary was essential for protecting individual rights and ensuring the rule of law.
