During the 20th century, Ministers of the Department of Justice in Belgium have been politically accountable for the pardons granted by the King. As a result, they had to answer questions on issues of pardons asked by members of both chambers of Parliament, viz. the Chamber of Representatives and the Senate. When responding to these questions, they would choose between two possible approaches: either they refused to disclose the specific reasons for a pardon because of the principle that the Crown's position had to remain protected by ministerial responsibility, or they stated the specific reasons on purely political grounds. On two occasions, the latter approach resulted in the Minister's enforced resignation.
