European Court judgements guide Moldovan lawyers
In order to contribute to a higher observance of the European Convention in Moldova, Civil Rights Defenders cooperate with Lawyers for Human Rights in translating the jurisprudence of the European Court concerning Moldova into Romanian language.
The European Convention on Human Rights entered into force in 1997 in Moldova. Yet, the knowledge about the Convention is still rather low among Moldovan legal professionals. Until January 2011 more than 6.245 cases had been submitted to the European Court of Human Rights. So far, the Court has delivered 196 judgments against Moldova and violations were found in 195 cases.
Additionally, Lawyers for Human Rights maintains and upgrades a web page, and issues press releases with summaries of judgments from the European Court, to increase the awareness about European Convention standards among Moldovan legal specialists and the general public.News.
