ECHR demanded judges candidates to be more qualified

The president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) welcomed on Friday decisions made at a conference on future of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).

PACE President Mevlut Cavusoglu asked member states to fulfil their responsibilities in ECHR's reform process.

Cavusoglu participated in a conference on the future of European Court of Human Rights in Interlaken, Switzerland on February 18 and 19.

"Member states have demanded that candidate judges of ECHR should be more qualified people, and ECHR's decisions should be implemented in national levels without losing any time," Cavusoglu said.

The Swiss Chairmanship of the Council of Europe's (COE) Committee of Ministers organized a conference on the future of European Court of Human Rights in Interlaken, Switzerland on February 18 and 19.

Human rights ministers from 47 COE member states gathered at the Casino Kursaal in Interlaken for the conference.

The aim of the conference was to reaffirm member states' commitment to protecting human rights in Europe, and their determination to enable the European Court of Human Rights, which is a vital cog in the protection mechanism, to cope with the growing volume of applications.
