Pervert judge critises the European Court of Human Rights!

Pervert judge critises the European Court of Human Rights!

James Slack and Michael Seamark in the Daily Mail write

Judges' £2.5m delay in extraditing six UK terror suspects... but they were quick to seal hacker Gary's fate

Independent panel will accuse European court of being inefficient and slow
Terrorists accused of plotting atrocities and running extremist websites and camps
Same judges dismissed Asperger’s sufferer Gary McKinnon's appeal case in a day

"Today the review panel, established by the Home Office and led by Lord Justice Scott Baker, will urge ministers to put pressure on the Strasbourg court to reform the way it works".

Comment: The Home Office is seeking to deport innocent until proven guilty people who are in prison and have been for a number of years simply because they are deemed to be terrorist suspects. Given that the Home Office has an interest in this issue and set up the review panel, it cannot be claimed that it is an independent panel. Notwithstanding that it is headed by a judge. The last I saw of Lord Justice Scott Baker he was entrusted to determine whether I posed an unacceptable risk to the public to be released from Sudbury open prison in Derbyshire. My barrister opined that he seemed more interested in discovering the services provided and prices charged in Bubbles Massage Parlour in Derby!

"The Government, which has been embroiled in a long row with the court over votes for prisoners, will jump at the chance to issue a rebuke to the judges over terror".

The Daily Mail which is getting on its high horse on the issue of delay conveniently forgets to mention that the UK has delayed fully complying with the ECtHR judgment on prisoners votes for just over 6 years now.

Shouldn't the Daily Mail be suggesting that the UK cleans up its own back yard first before pointing the finger at someone else's back yard?

One of the causes for delay with the ECtHR is the vast number of repetitive or clone cases causing a backlog in the system. These cases have come from Member States which have failed to implement ECtHR rulings. For example, there are now 3,500 prisoners votes cases jamming up the system. The Daily Mail is silent about this issue.
