Familiarising judges with the most recent landmark case-law of the European Court of Human Rights

European Union and the Council of Europe, in co-operation with the Supreme Court of Georgia, organised a workshop on the most recent case-law of the European Court of Human Rights and national court practices, involving 30 judges from all instances.

Participants of the workshop, held on 30 November, became familiar with the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights concerning adversarial procedure in criminal law, principles of witness interrogation, drug-related crimes, and Georgian legislation and practice on cases related to domestic violence. In addition, judges from all instances discussed judgments of European Court of Human Rights in relation to state’s obligation to respect the right to private and family life, right to life, prohibition of torture and discrimination, right to education, right to liberty and security, fair trial standards, freedom of thought, conscience and religion, protection of property, freedom of expression, freedom of assembly and association.

The event was organised in the framework of the EU/CoE joint project “Strengthening the Application of the European Convention on Human Rights in Georgia”, within the EU-CoE Partnership for Good Governance.
