European Court of Human Rights requires Bulgaria to deal with long proceedings.

By bne IntelliNews May 11, 2011
The European Court of Human Rights has requested the country to adopt measures to deal with the absence of effective legal remedies for excessive length of civil, administrative and criminal proceedings, the institution informed in a press release on its website. The remedies should be in line with the Courts principles and must be available in 15 months. The Court informs that some 700 cases against Bulgaria are awaiting examination with respect to the right to a fair trial within reasonable time and the right to an effective remedy. Thus the country is violating two articles of the European Convention on Human Rights. The European Court of Human Rights sees the above issues as a systematic problem of the countrys justice system.
