Proceedings European Court
||You may lodge an application with the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg if you consider that you have personally and directly been the victim of a violation of the rights and guarantees set out in the Convention or its Protocols. The violation must have been committed by one of the States bound by the Convention.
Your application must relate to one of the rights set out in the European Convention on Human Rights. Alleged violations may cover a wide range of issues, such as: torture and ill-treatment of prisoners; lawfulness of detention; shortcomings in civil or criminal trials; discrimination in the exercise of a Convention right; parental rights; respect for private life, family life, the home and correspondence; restrictions on expressing an opinion or on imparting or receiving information; freedom to take part in an assembly or demonstration; expulsion and extradition; confiscation of property; and expropriation.
This is a highly specialized matter. We will first analyze if a petition has merits as the Court deals only with a limited number of well-specified infringements. Please not that as a general rule, the European Court of Human Rights may only be seized after all domestic appeals are exhausted.
