Britain will violate the convention on human rights by refusing to comply with court decisions

Britain will violate the convention on human rights by refusing to comply with the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).

“The Court held that Article 34 of the Convention (by which Contracting States undertake to refrain from any act or omission which might interfere with the effective exercise of the right of an individual applicant to lodge a complaint) would be violated if the authorities of the State did not take all the steps that could be taken to comply provisional measures,” the press service commented on the intention of the United Kingdom to consider a bill restricting the jurisdiction of the ECtHR.


Earlier, British Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab introduced a bill according to which British courts will be able to waive the obligation to always follow the decisions of the ECtHR, and the Supreme Court of London will become the main decision-making body on human rights issues in the country. Raab emphasized that the bill should “reduce abuses of the system and bring a little more common sense” to human rights law.
