HANLAR HADJIYEV: 90% OF APPEALS TO EUROPEAN COURT ON HUMAN RIGHTS DECLINED EVEN AT PRELIMINARY STAGE OF CONSIDERATION
Over 90% of appeals sent to European Court on Human Rights (ECHR) from Azerbaijan are rejected even at the preliminary stage of consideration due to improper shaping of documents, the ECHR judge from Azerbaijan Hanlar Hadjiyev told Trend in the exclusive interview.
Hadjiyev noted, the number of appeals and complaints to the European Human Rights Court is too great, due to which procedural difficulties arise in regard to examining them, including on Azerbaijan.
В"Any appeal to ECHR should be shaped in strict conformity with the established standards, otherwise they are simply ignored, the judge said, noting, a certain period of time is needed for consideration of cases. В"I can only note, there are no artificial obstacles for examining the cases on Azerbaijan at ECHRвЂќ, Hadjiyev underlined.
Meanwhile, the judge noted the Armenian side does its utmost toвЂќlevelвЂќ the number of appeals to ECHR. вЂњIt is done for the sake of minimizing in future the steps of ECHR against Armenia, to create the appearance of the necessity for balanced approach to the Armenian-Azerbaijani issuesвЂќ.
In conclusion, Hadjiyev voiced the view in regard to the European Court on Human Rights on reforming the AzerbaijanвЂ™s judicial system. According to him, the assistance to the official Baku in this respect is rendered by the European agencies, particularly, the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe. В"Undoubtedly, this factor has a positive impact on the processes of the AzerbaijanвЂ™s integration into EuropeвЂќ, Hadjiyev said
