Council of Europe: European Court of Human Rights

The Court, based in Strasbourg, was set up as a result of the European Convention on Human Rights, created in 1950. This set out a catalogue of civil and political rights and freedoms. It allows people to lodge complaints against States which have signed up to the Convention for alleged violations of those rights. Although founded in 1950, the Court did not actually come into existence until 1959. It gained its present form as a single European Court of Human Rights when Protocol No. 11 to the ECHR took effect in 1998.

The Court is currently made up of 47 judges, one in principle for every State signed up to the Convention. They are elected by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and serve for six years. Judges sit on the Court as individuals and do not represent their country.  Website: www.echr.coe.int/Pages/home.aspx?p=home

Freimann v. Croatia

This judgment will become final in the circumstances set out in Article 44 § 2 of the Convention. It may be subject to editorial revision. The applicant is a national of Croatia and Germany whose house in Slavonski Brod was blown up by unknown perpetrators. On 4 October 1995 she instituted civil proceedings seeking damages from the Republic of Croatia. Pursuant to the 1996 amendments to the Civil Obligations Act, the case was stayed by the Municipal Court. Pursuant to the Damage from Terrorist Acts and Public Demonstrations Act 2003, the proceedings resumed on 4 December 2003. Before the Court, the applicant claimed, that the enactment of the 1996 Act violated her right of access to court guaranteed by Article 6 §1 of the Convention. The Court found in accordance with the Kutiæ jurisprudence that the long period (more than seven years) for which the applicant was prevented from having her civil claim decided by domestic courts as a consequence of a legislative measure constituted a violation of Article 6 §1 of the Convention. This judgement is not final. Note that two friendly settlements were reached in two similar cases against Croatia on 24 June 2004 (Jorgiæ v Croatia, Appl. No. 70446/01 and Kresoviæ v. Croatia, Appl. No. 75545/01).
