Melsheimer became (after Hilde Benjamin) the second most important state lawyer in the young country. Melsheimer was a strong believer in party control of the courts. (By now, only one political party, the SED, was permitted in East Germany). He was opposed to any Western-style separation of powers between the justice system and the state. He took a hands-on approach to his job, appearing in person as the principal (prosecution) advocate in numerous secret trials and in high-profile show trials during the 1950s. (en)
