European court ruled that Czech judiciary is not independent

The European Court of Human Rights states that the Czech Supreme Court’s Disciplinary Senate is sufficiently independent and unfair. The agency is responsible for disciplinary action against judges, prosecutors and court officials. A court in Strathbourg said the situation meant that the Czech Republic violated its right to a fair trial and called for a correction.

The ruling follows a complaint from a Czech court official who claimed that the disciplinary action of the court body did not correspond to a proper trial and did not allow the appeal. The European Court of Human Rights has given him € 4,000 in damages.
