English translation:plea
Explanation:
"middel" is a legal term for "plea". The excerpts are too short to give you absolute certainty about this proposal, you should look again at the texts as a whole. This seems to be a text concerning Belgian law. If it is very important you could contact a Belgian government site.

the word middel is used in the legal sense as 'proof, evidence or argument.


Explanation:
In this context the last would seem to apply best, making it "considering the argument as a whole" concerning the second argument' and 'considering this section of the argument"

middel


Explanation:
More context would be appreciated; but 'argument' will most probably be the term you're looking for

'Means', 'remedy', 'expedient' or device' will most probably not work
