Constitutional Court-ECHR dialogue promotes human rights - ECHR head
MOSCOW, October 27 - RAPSI. The Russian Constitutional Court and the European Court for Human Rights have established a dialogue which will help to resolve their differences and promote human rights, European Court Chairman Jean-Paul Costa said at the twentieth anniversary of the Russian Constitutional Court.
"It is important that the Constitutional Court and our court have a shared objective, and I truly believe the word 'dialogue' is best suited for describing our relations," Costa said.
He added that conflicts related to interpreting and applying the European Convention for Human Rights are rare, but the parties need to cooperate continuously to preclude such conflicts.
Costa stressed that the human rights situation in Russia has improved since Russia adopted the convention 13 years ago.
Meanwhile, Andreas Vosskuhle, the head of the German Constitutional Court, encouraged the Russian court to continue pursuing justice in future cases.
