The European Convention on Human Rights Has to Be Amended
The European Convention on Human Rights*1 must be altered.
A forbidden nature of individual applications causing their dismissal by judges of offices of the European Court of Human Rights is an object of this exploration.
This article plans to discover whether certain arrangements of the European Convention on Human Rights relating to discovering singular applications forbidden, causing a dismissal of such applications, fall in consistence with the standards of the Rule of law and with the general regulation of Judicial Review.
A need for such an exploration of the point results from various realities when judges of offices of the European Court of Human Rights, while acting in singular limit ( for example the purported single appointed authorities) with capability referenced in Article 27 of the European Convention on Human Rights embrace their choices which keep the Court from further creation a careful legal examination to benefits and realities of utilizations got. One of the demonstrating instances of this is the reality as follows.
Since 2007 the Kyiv Circuit court of Ukraine has not been hearing a claim of the Association of Independent law specialists and writers “The Democratic Space” (here and after – the Association) submitted against the Ukrainian State for example against: the leader of Ukraine; the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine; the Ukrainian parliament; the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine; the State Savings Bank of Ukraine. The claim’s necessity under the watchful eye of the court was: to order a judgment which could express that the Ukrainian State damaged the legitimate right of Ukrainian nationals to get back their economies at any point saved by them in banking offices of the then Soviet Ukraine, preceding 02 January 1992, and which had not been come back to them from that point forward.
Having determined that such an infringement happened by virtue of gross encroachments by an appointed authority of the Kyiv Administrative court of Ukraine, the Association required from the Highest Qualification Committee of judges of Ukraine to found a disciplinary procedures against that judge. Yet, this panel, bargains, most importantly, with inquiries of carrying judges to disciplinary obligations dismissed the Association’s solicitation with no demonstrating clarifications.
Thereafter, on 10 July 2013, the Highest Administrative court of Ukraine by righteousness of its goals dismissed the Association’s claim against the Highest Qualification Committee of judges of Ukraine. Inside a fundamental cutoff time of the half year term, the Association presented an application to the ward of the European Court of Human Rights (here and after – the Court). In this application the affiliation expressed that Ukraine had abused the affiliation’s human rights to reasonable hearing as it is predicted by Article 6(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights.
On 20 March 2014 a chamber judge of the Court embraced a choice composing that the Association’s application was dismissed by him since he had thought that it was prohibited and as with the end goal that probably won’t be requested before the Grand office of the Court. An assessment of this very choice both starting at some different choices authorized by virtue of other candidates’ applications demonstrated that such legal choices didn’t fall in consistence: with necessities: of Article 45 of the European Convention on Human Rights; with some popularity based standards, for example, the Rule of law; the legal audit; and the straightforwardness.
In 1977 powerful political scholar and teacher of law at the Columbia University, Law School, Joseph Razz in his “The Authority of law” in the second its edition”*2. distinguished constituent standards of the Rule of law as status when there ought to be clear principles and systems for making laws, and when there ought to be straightforwardness of legitimate arrangements of the law and of legal choices. An assessment of the previously mentioned choices of those single appointed authorities of the Court expressed that the choices needed straightforwardness of exact explanations behind discovering applications forbidden. What’s more, on the off chance that it is in this way, at that point these choices must be conceded as invalid and void and be canceled as invalid since they don’t fall in consistence with the Rule of law. In any case, shockingly the previously mentioned Article 45 of the European Convention on Human Rights, predicting a need to show reasons, for proclaiming applications unacceptable doesn’t anticipate any ensuing status for those applications misleadingly found by some single appointed authorities forbidden as it is referenced over, that positively adds to all adjudicators not to demonstrate in their choices exact purposes behind pronouncing the applications prohibited that over the long haul adds to a dismissal of numerous individual applications without making an exhaustive anticipated that investigation should benefits and realities of the applications.
Legal Review is the teaching under which administrative or official activities are liable to audit by the legal executive. As indicated by a definition, attracted the “Dark’s Law Dictionary” *3, legal Review is characterized as intensity of courts to survey choices of another office or level of government. As we see, legal survey is a basic component of any legal framework that can’t manage without the legal audit. An office of the Court might be indisputably recognized to be a division of the European Court of Human Rights under which the Grand Chamber, if surveying the last by its center is the branch of Higher ward, that can be validated by arrangements of Article 43 of the European Convention on Human Rights, that expresses that inside a time of a quarter of a year from the date of the judgment of a chamber, any gathering to the case may demand that the case be alluded to the Grand Chamber that should choose the case by methods for administering a judgment. So in the event that to concede, that the Grand Chamber has higher purview, at that point an office of an area Court has lower locale, similar to a lower division making an underlying examination of an application by excellence of evaluating the application with the object of finding an acceptability of the application. Provided that this is true, at that point as indicated by the vote based regulation of Judicial Review, this current chamber’s choice must be likewise dependent upon legal survey by the Highest Chamber of the Court, i.e., – by the Grand Chamber based on applying to the rule of the similarity of law as it is inferred by the previously mentioned Article 43 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
Just such a technique will guarantee a movement of the popularity based standards in the European Convention on Human Rights during the time spent creation equity by the European Court of Human Rights.
Leaving this, there are sufficient grounds to presume that arrangements of the European Convention on Human Rights relating to discovering forbidden nature of individual applications don’t fall in consistence with the Rule of Law and with the other majority rule standards of making equity as it is referenced previously. All together these arrangements could fall in consistence with the Rule of Law and with the other previously mentioned vote based standards, there ought to be made changes as follow:
Article 45 of the European Convention on Human Rights ought to be enhanced by statement 3, perusing: If reasons are not given for decisions and for choices pronouncing applications unacceptable, at that point such choices will be announced to be invalid and void, for example – canceled by the Grand office of the European Court of Human Rights.
Further on: Article 43 ought to be enhanced with proviso 4 perusing that inside a time of a quarter of a year from the date of a judgment\a choice of a chamber, involved with the case whose application is proclaimed prohibited may demand that the case be alluded to the Grand Chamber for looking into lawfulness of an ascertainment of unacceptability of the application. In the event of seeing such a forbidden nature as unlawful, the Grand Chamber will annulment such chambers’ choices by goodness of its judgment.
