EIT:lle lahjoitus Norjalta9.9.2014 | Oikeusuutiset
Norja on tehnyt 2 miljoonan Norjan kruunun (n. 240.000 €) suuruisen lahjoituksen Euroopan ihmisoikeustuomioistuimen erityistilille, jota on tarkoitus käyttää jutturuuhkien purkamiseen. Suomi on lahjoittanut samalle tilille viidenneksi suurimman summan (139.337 €).
The Norwegian Government has made a new contribution of NOK 2 million (approximately 240,000 euros) to the Court’s special account which was set up after the Brighton conference in 2012 with a view to helping the Court reduce its backlog of priority cases. With this contribution Norway becomes the top contributor to the account with a total of 627,750 euros since 2012, followed by Germany (441,139 euros), Sweden (234,805 euros), Turkey (150,000) euros, Finland (139,337 euros) and the Netherlands 100,000 euros) for the States which have contributed 100,000 euros or more. In all a total of 2,100,963 euros has been paid into the special account since it was established.
At 30 June 2014 the stock of cases pending before the Court stood at 84,850 compared with 151,600 on 1 January 2012, a decrease of 44% despite continuing high levels of incoming cases (65,900 applications in 2013). The Court has therefore successfully reduced a significant part of its backlog, particularly of inadmissible cases. While this achievement is essentially due to the reforms implemented by Protocol No. 14 and especially the Single Judge mechanism as well as new internal working methods, the special account which enables the Court to recruit additional lawyers has also played its part.
