24th March

Judge Garzón yesterday brought a case to the European Court of Human Rights challenging the lawfulness of his criminal prosecution in Spain for having opened an investigation into serious crimes committed during the Franco era, following a request by families and representatives of victims of the regime. The case presented by INTERIGHTS argues that this prosecution of a judge for his interpretations of the law is a violation of several of Judge Garzon's rights under the Convention, and that it infringes the cardinal principle of judicial independence that underpins human rights protection and the rule of law.

Landmark judgment from European Court of Human Rights on the rights of persons living with HIV/AIDS
11th March

On 10 March , in the case of Kiyutin v Russia, the European Court of Human Rights held that refusing a residence permit to a foreign national solely on the basis of their HIV-positive status amounted to unlawful discrimination. This landmark case is a significant boost to the rights of persons living with HIV/AIDS (‘PLHIV’) in Europe, as the judgment contains two important ‘firsts’: not only has it explicitly recognised that PLHIV are protected as a distinct group against discrimination in relation to their fundamental rights; but it has also recognised that PLHIV are a ‘vulnerable group’ and any restriction of their rights attracts a higher degree of scrutiny on the part of the European Court.
