114 TIIE PUBLIC LAW OF FINLAND.

Emperor, as are also tlie members, but tlie
latter are presented for nomination by tlie
Department of Justice of the Senate.

The courts of appeal are divided into sections,
each being complete with five members ; but
four members may pronounce sentence in
noncapital cases, provided three of them agree to
the sentence.

The court of appeal takes cognizance, in the
second instance, of all appeals from the
decisions of the town and district courts in all
matters within their respective jurisdictions,
and from the decisions of the governors and
some other public functionaries in certain cases
determined by law. It examines the sentences
imposed for infamous crimes, which sentences
are submitted to it by the tribunals of first
instance.

Besides the above, the court of appeal deals,
in the first instance, with blasphemies against
the Deity, after investigation before a lower
tribunal, offences against the Sovereign and
crimes against the State, crimes and
misdemeanours committed by judges of first instance
