European Court of Human Rights´ judgments: 2nd Council of Europe Committee of Ministers meeting to supervise execution

Strasbourg, 28.05.2010 – From 1st to 3rd June the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers will hold its second 2010 “human rights” meeting, in which it will supervise the execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights.

471 new cases will be examined, a number of which raise questions related to the adoption of individual measures needed to erase the consequences for the applicants of violations established by the European Court (over and above the payment of any monetary damages awarded by the Court itself) and/or general measures, such as legislative changes, aimed at preventing new similar violations.

The Committee will also examine progress made in a number of pending cases, including the advancement of some 500 legislative or other reforms required as a result of the European Court’s judgments. The Committee will consider as well the adoption of final resolutions in 87 cases in which all of the necessary execution measures have been taken by the national authorities, and will assess whether some 11 further cases are ready to be closed.

A preliminary list of items/cases for consideration at this meeting is available on the website, under the heading "CM-DH meetings".

The latest public information on the main pending cases is available, on a country-by-country basis, under the heading "State of execution".

Interim Resolutions and decisions, in particular taking stock of progress achieved and providing guidance as to possible further execution measures required, will become public at the end of the meeting. Other decisions, and the annotated agenda (with information on the execution situation made in the different cases), will be made public once formally adopted a fortnight after the meeting at the Committee of Ministers website and at
