Bucharest, criticized for delay in enforcing ECHR decisions

The European Council Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) argues that nine states, Romania among them, indicate “major systemic deficiencies”, which lead to repeated violations of the European Convention on Human Rights, according to a resolution adopted on Wednesday.

The resolution is based on the report drafted by the Cypriot rapporteur Christos Pourgourides, who argues that the structural problems in Bulgaria, Romania, Greece, Italy, R. of Moldova, Poland, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine lead to “most worrying delays” in the implementation of decisions issued by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). The main problems are deaths or maltreatments resulting from actions of the law-enforcement agents, illegal or prolonged detention, prolonged legal procedures or the failure to apply court rulings. If these problems were solved at national level, fewer cases would end up at ECHR, PACE members argue. Furthermore, the resolution mentions the Rotaru vs. Romania case, concerned with the intelligence abuse by the Romanian Intelligence Service, and points out that, despite insistencies by the Committee of Ministers, the legislative reform is still pending, almost ten years after the ECHR decision.
