Council of Europe adopts 'Brighton Declaration'

Your Expert Witness Council of EuropeOn 20 April the UK Justice Secretary Ken Clarke announced that the so-called Brighton Declaration on reforming the European Court of Human Rights had been agreed by all 47 signatories to the Declaration.

Speaking at the Council of Europe Conference in the city, Mr Clarke said: “These reforms represent a substantial package of reform and are a significant step towards realising the goals that the Prime Minister set out in Strasbourg.

“Taken together, these changes should mean fewer cases being considered by the court. Those that it considers should be allegations of serious violations or major points of interpretation of the Convention and will be processed without the scandalous delays we are seeing at present.

US Supreme Court attacked over Feres “failure”

The military judiciary in the US is currently deciding how to deal with Staff Sgt Robert Bales, the soldier suspected of one of the most horrendous incidents to date in its engagement in Afghanistan – that of the shooting dead of 16 civilians, mainly children, in Kandahar.

Sgt Bales was reportedly passed fit for duty after being injured twice, including suffering a ‘concussive brain injury’. The wisdom or otherwise of that decision will no doubt emerge in due course, however his lawyer is reported by the BBC as suggesting Sgt Bales “…was not fit to serve because of injuries he had suffered on previous tours of duty”.

Sgt Bales’ injuries were suffered on active service, but many other military personnel suffer injuries in their daily working lives that are completely analogous to other work-related injuries suffered by civilians. However, US soldiers – unlike their counterparts in the British military – cannot sue the US government for compensation in the courts.

Minnesota resident Aaron Olsen attempted to sue his own uncle for harassment after he had posted embarrassing family photos of his nephew of Facebook. The photos included portraits of Olsen as a child in front of a Christmas tree.
