Case of Jesina v. the Czech Republic
Author: European Court of Human Rights
Language: English
Source: European Court of Human Rights
Country: Czech Republic

Government level: International
Guiding principle: The applicant complained that the Czech Constitutional Court had declared his appeal inadmissible for failure to exhaust statutory remedies in violation of Article 6 § 1 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (right to a fair hearing by a tribunal). The European Court of Human Rights finds that the particularly restrictive interpretation by the Czech Constitutional Court of a procedural rule deprived the applicant of his right of access to court. Consequently, there has been a violation of Article 6 § 1 of the Convention.
