Europese druk op Italië om oneerlijke processen te heropenen (en)

Met dank overgenomen van Raad van Europa (RvE), gepubliceerd op woensdag 5 juli 2006.

Strasbourg, 05.07.2006 - At its meeting held yesterday in Strasbourg, the Committee of Ministers once again insisted on the need for reopening judicial proceedings in Italy. This reopening is considered as the best way to erase the consequences of the violations of the right to a fair trial found by the European Convention of Human Rights.

The Committee considered this issue in the framework of the supervision of the execution of the Court's judgments finding several violations of the Convention in the cases of Dorigo, F.C.B, R.R., Bracci and Sejdovic. It invited the Italian authorities to pursue its efforts to ensure either by the extension of jurisprudence, or by reform of the law, erasure of the consequences of the judicial proceedings found to be contrary to the Convention.

The Committee agreed to resume consideration of the progress made in the execution of these judgments and decisions at their 976th meeting (17-18 October 2006).

Former texts adopted by the Committee of Ministers; Resolutions DH(2002)30 , DH(2004)13 , DH(2005)85 ; and by Parliamentary Assembly: Resolution 1411(2004) and Recommendation 1684 (2004)

      • *

Under the European Convention on Human Rights, the European Court’s judgments require the adoption by the respondent States, under the Committee supervision, of all measures necessary to grant the applicants appropriate redress and to prevent new similar violations in the future.
