Stricter conditions for applying to the European Court of Human Rights

Strasbourg, 13 December.

The President of the Human Rights Committee, Annelise Oeschger, would like to draw NGOs attention to the new requirements for introducing an application with the European Court of Human Rights. The Plenary Court approved a revision of Rule 47 of the Rules of Court which sets out what an individual application to the Court should contain. The purpose of the amendment is to achieve greater efficiency in the way applications are dealt with at the initial stage of the process before the Court.
