Jurisprudence of the Human Rights Chamber for Bosnia and Herzegovina collection

The Human Rights Chamber for Bosnia and Herzegovina first constituted in March 1996. Many changes have taken place since the Chamber issued its first decision on the merits in the case CH/96/01 Matanovic v. the Republika Srpska. From that early beginning until today, the Chamber has deliberated, debated and decided on a couple thousand cases involving a diverse range of alleged violations of human rights. Over the years it has established itself into an effective and impartial judicial institution that has earned the trust and confidence of the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Chamber has jurisdiction not only in relation to allegations that the rights protected in the European Convention are not respected and secured, but also on alleged discrimination in the enjoyment of rights protected by other international treaties (Article II(2)(b) of Annex 6).
With this multi-volume collection we present all the Jurisprudence of the Human Rights Chamber of Bosnia
and Herzegovina. Per volume, several cases are presented ordered by case number.

International Court of Justice Series

The series include documents related to the establishment and history of the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of International Justice documents, as well as documents on the Court such as the latest version of the Statute and Rules of Procedure. Part of the series is dedicated to cases brought before the Court. Some treaties that confer jurisdiction on the ICJ are included in this collection. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (UN). It was established in June 1945 by the Charter of the United Nations and began work in April 1946. The seat of the Court is at the Peace Palace in The Hague (Netherlands). The Court’s role is to settle, in accordance with international law, legal disputes submitted to it by States and to give advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by authorized United Nations organs and specialized agencies.The ICJ is vested with the power to make its own rules. Court procedure is set out in Rules of Court of the International Court of Justice 1978 (as amended on 29 September 2005). Cases before the ICJ will follow a standard pattern. The case is lodged by the applicant who files a written memorial setting out the basis of the Court's jurisdiction and the merits of its claim. The respondent may accept the Court's jurisdiction and file its own memorial on the merits of the case.The Court may entertain two types of cases: legal disputes between States submitted to it by them (contentious cases) and requests for advisory opinions on legal questions referred to it by United Nations organs and specialized agencies (advisory proceedings).

The Sierra Leone Special Court Collection

The Special Court for Sierra Leone is an independent judicial body set up to “try those who bear greatest responsibility” for serious violations, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed during the Sierra Leone Civil War which began in 1991 and was declared officially over on 18 January 2002.

The Permanent Court for International Justice Collection

The establishment of the Permanent Court of International Justice (PCIJ), the predecessor of the International Court of Justice, was provided for in the Covenant of the League of Nations. It held its inaugural sitting in 1922 and was dissolved in 1946. The work of the PCIJ, the first permanent international tribunal with general jurisdiction, made possible the clarification of a number of aspects of international law, and contributed to its development.

Between 1922 and 1940 the PCIJ dealt with 29 contentious cases between States, and delivered 27 advisory opinions.

The Court’s mandatory jurisdiction came from three sources: the Optional Clause of the League of Nations, general international conventions and special bipartite international treaties. Cases could also be submitted directly by states, but they were not bound to submit material unless it fell into those three categories. The Court could issue either judgments or advisory opinions. Judgments were directly binding while advisory opinions were not. In practice, member states of the League of Nations followed advisory opinions anyway, as they feared that otherwise, they could undermine the moral and legal authority of the Court and League.

This collection contain the decisions (Judgments, Advisory Opinions and Orders) delivered by the Permanent Court of International Justice from 1922 to 1940.

The written pleadings, records of the public hearings and correspondence for each case are also available in this Series. Our collection contains acts and documents concerning the organization of the Court, as well as the preparation of its Rules of Court and the modifications to those Rules. The Court’s Yearbooks (entitled Annual Reports) can be found in the series.

Product Description

The creation of a human rights court for Africa offers significantopportunities to secure a better life for all on the continent. So far,the potential of the African Court of Human Rights and Peoples’ Rights in complementing the protective mandate of the ACommHPR has remained largely unexplored. In the only case submitted to it, the Court correctly — but through an inordinately protracted process — concluded that it did not have jurisdiction to deal with the matter. Thereare several reasons for this dearth of cases. A major reason is thatsome of the States that are most frequently found in violation of theirCharter obligations by the ACommHPR have not yet ratified the AfCHPRProtocol. The ACommHPR can therefore not transfer these cases tothe AfCHPR. Regardless of the lack of cases and power of the court, it is interesting to get a firm understanding of the documents that underly the establishment of the AfCHPR to be able to compare them to already existing courts. The editors have thus tried to complement already existing background materials on (inter)national courts.

Product Description

 

 

A truth commission or truth and reconciliation commission is a commission tasked with discovering and revealing past wrongdoing by a government (or, depending on the circumstances, non-state actors also), in the hope of resolving conflict left from the past. They are, under various names, occasionally set up by states emerging from periods of internal unrest, civil war, or dictatorship. South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, established by President Nelson Mandela after apartheid, is popularly considered a model of Truth Commissions.

This work examines all the TRC’s in the world and provides for background materials on their efforts to bring peace and security in the countries involved.

Product Description

 

The Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation in East Timor (more commonly known by its Portuguese acronym CAVR: Comissão de Acolhimento, Verdade e Reconciliação de Timor Leste) was an independent truth commission established in East Timor in 2001 under the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET) and charged to "inquire into human rights violations committed on all sides, between April 1974 and October 1999, and facilitate community reconciliation with justice for those who committed less serious offenses." The Commission delivered its 2,500-page report entitled Chega meaning "stop" or "enough" in Portuguese, covering human rights violations from 1974 to 1999, to the President of East Timor on 31 October 2005. The President then handed the report to the Secretary General of the UN as required by law, on 20 January 2006.

 

In this work an overview of the work of the Commission is presented. It is the first of more books devoted to Truth and Reconcilliation Commissions around the world.

 

International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda

The Encyclopedia on the ICTR includes the most important documents with regard to the Tribunal. The Encyclopedia on the ICTR forms a useful tool for everyone working and studying in the field of international law.
On 6 April 1994 the Hutu President Juvenal Habryarimana was assassinated, as a result of this assassination, the Great Lakes country of Rwanda descended into civil war and genocide. An extermination campaign was launched by the Hutu extremists in the National Republican Movement for Development and Democracy (MRND) and the Rwandan Armed Forces (RAF) against moderate Hutu and the entire Tutsi ethnic minority.

Over 800,000 Rwandans were murdered during the civil war which ended on 19 July 1994. The ones responsible for the genocide in Rwanda had to be punished. Therefore the United Nations (hereafter ‘UN’) established the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (hereafter ‘ICTR’ or ‘Tribunal’) through Resolution 955, adopted on 8
November 1994.
Through the establishment of the ICTR the UN wanted to restore and maintain peace. The ICTR is the first international court of law established to prosecute high-ranking individuals for massive human rights violations in Africa. The ICTR operations started in 1995. The main idea was to create a temporary institution to investigate crimes committed during the 1994 war in Rwanda, and to prosecute the ones responsible. Mainly because Rwanda’s domestic judicial system was not able or did not want to do this.

The ICTR has primacy over the national courts. According to the ICTR Statute, the national courts must defer to the competence of the ICTR. At request of the Security Council, a ‘completion strategy’ was drafted by the ICTR, because the national judicial systems did not have the ability to handle war crimes cases on their own. The ‘completion  strategy’ is a plan which includes three phases, namely: investigation, trial, and appeal. Deadlines are set for all three phases to be completed. Unfortunately the ICTR struggles to meet the goals before the deadlines set. 


This Encyclopaedia is unique in its kind and will be the mostly cited and complete series in the world on the work of the tribunal.

Product Description

 

The U.S.-appointed Iraqi Governing Council approved a statute establishing the Iraqi Special Tribunal for Crimes Against Humanity on December 10, 2003. The Coalition Provisional Authority and the Iraqi Governing Council were replaced by the Iraqi Interim Government on June 28, 2004. Following the Iraqi Transitional National Assembly election on January 30, 2005, the Iraqi Transitional Government was established on May 3, 2005. On August 11, 2005, the Iraqi Transitional National Assembly adopted a new Statute of the Iraqi Special Tribunal, which changed its name to “Higher Criminal Court” and brought its practices more into line with the rest of the Iraqi judicial system. The Iraqi Special Tribunal is designed to prosecute those accused of crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide in Iraq between July 17, 1968, when Saddam Hussein’s Bath Party seized power, and May 1, 2003, when President Bush declared that major combat operations in Iraq were over. The court also has the authority to try several lesser crimes, including the squandering of public funds and attempts to manipulate the judiciary.

Saddam Hussein, both in life and death one of the most controversial prominent leaders of the Arab world. Fiercely loved and hated, his name will be remembered for

“Camp Cropper”, along with 11 other senior Baathist leaders, were handed over legally (though not physically) to the interim Iraqi government to stand trial for crimes against humanity and other offences. A few weeks later, he was charged by the Iraqi Special Tribunal with crimes committed against residents of Dujail in 1982, following

centuries in the history of mankind. His legacy is two‐fold; there are ones that still admire his achievements and leadership with respect, honor and loyalty. However for most others, his legacy symbolizes fear, tyranny and hypocrisy.
On 30 June 2004, Saddam Hussein, held in custody by U.S. forces at the U.S. basea failed assassination attempt against him. Specific charges included the murder of 148 people, torture of women and children and the illegal arrest of 399 others. On 5 November 2006, Saddam Hussein was found guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death by hanging. The verdict and sentencing was appealed but subsequently affirmed by Iraq’s Supreme Court of Appeals. On 30 December 2006, Saddam was hanged.

This book illustrates the work of the tribunal and presentes the cases brought before the court.

 

 

The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia

In 1997, Cambodia established a Khmer Rouge Trial Task Force to create a legal and judicial structure to try the remaining leaders for war crimes and other crimes against humanity. Under the agreement between Cambodia and the UN, the tribunal is to be composed of both local and international judges. Both the Pre-Trial Chamber and the Trial Chamber are composed of three Cambodian and two international judges, while a Supreme Court Chamber is made up of four Cambodian judges and three international judges. All international judges have been appointed by the Supreme Council of the Magistracy of Cambodia from a list of nominees submitted by the UN Secretary-General. On July 19, 2007, the prosecutors submitted a list of five charged persons to the Tribunal’s Co-Investigating Judges, and requested that they be indicted and brought to trial. On 4 February, 2008, the tribunal held its first hearing. In this collection we provide for the complete documentation on the work of the Court. Basic documents, transcripts and other relevant documentation of the Court are being reproduced.

By Regulation 2000/11, UNTAET created a judicial system, based on international norms concerning the administration of justice, including a special judicial mechanism that was added to the district court of Dili.  Together with an appelate mechanism, these two are known as the Special Panels for Serious Crimes (SPSC). In 2005, the SPSC completed more than four years of trials.

This book provides the reader with an introduction to the situation in East Timor and with the information that lead to the introduction of the Panels.

In June 1999, following a 78 day-long NATO campaign, the United Nations was tasked to govern Kosovo through its Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), with an unprecedented sweeping mandate to provide Kosovo with a "transitional administration while establishing and overseeing the development of provisional democratic self-governing institutions to ensure conditions for a peaceful and normal life for all inhabitants in Kosovo."

The UNMIK Department of Justice (DOJ) has made great strides in the area of prosecuting serious crime, including cases of corruption, terrorism, war crimes. The DOJ has also continued the transition of responsibilities to local institutions, the Ministry of Justice and the Kosovo Judicial Council, and established the Kosovo Special Prosecutors Office to enable local prosecutors to take on more serious cases in the future, including corruption, organised crime and crimes against public office.

The local courts are responsible for the administration of justice in Kosovo in accordance with the applicable law.

The work of these Courts and the International efforts to maintain peace and security through Justice in Kosovo are the main subjects of this work.

The Security Council agreed that the special tribunal set up to try the suspected killers of the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri will enter into force on 10 June unless Lebanon ratifies the tribunal itself before that date. The tribunal is mandated to try those suspected of assassinating Rafik Hariri, who was murdered along with 22 others in a bombing in Beirut on February 14,2005. Several human rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch have argued that the tribunal should have been given jurisdiction over 14 other attacks perpetrated in Lebanon since October 1, 2004. The tribunal marks the first time that a UN-based international criminal court will be trying a “terrorist” crime committed against a specific person. According to United Nations Security Council Resolution 1664 (2006), it is to be a “tribunal of an international character based on the highest international standards of criminal justice.

”The Special Tribunal will be a “hybrid” international court, similar to the Special Court for Sierra Leone, with the important difference, however, that it will not apply international (criminal) law but Lebanese law (Article 2 of the Statute of the Special Tribunal). The chambers will be composed of both Lebanese and international judges with a majority, however, of international judges (Article8 of the Statute of the Special Tribunal).For reasons of security, administrative efficiency and fairness, the tribunal has its seat outside Lebanon, in Leidschendam in The Netherlands. The premises of the tribunal will be the former Algemene Inlichtingen- en VeiligheidsDienst (AIVD) building.

This book contains letters, resolutions, agreements and reports of the United Nations Security Council that led to the establishment of the Hariri Tribunal. The second edition of this book includes new documents on the Hariri Tribunal.

Information about the tribunal

The Collection’s goal is to present the reasons that led to the establishment of The Special Court, and to offer an overview of the cases brought before The Court. It also provides for background materials such as basic documents on the tribunal and documents on the conflict. For many decades the Republic of Lebanon has been an area of conflict. These political and religious conflicts were characterized by large-scale atrocities committed by local and foreign actors, which could easily be defined as war crimes or crimes against humanity.

Thousands were killed, wounded, missing and forcibly displaced. These crimes were committed in a context of almost total impunity during the period of war in Lebanon from 1975 until 2005. With the signing of the peace agreement of Taif the conflict already ended in 1990, but the Israeli forces pursued to attack civilian targets till 2000, when they pulled back from the area of South Lebanon. However, the Syrian forces stayed in Lebanon and it took until 2005 for them to draw back under international pressure. Although the Syrian forces had withdrawn from Lebanon, the influence of Syria on the Lebanese government remained and the control of the Syrian security forces even grew gradually.

On 14 February 2005 the former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri died in a terrorist attack in Beirut. Also 22 other persons were killed and more than 100 persons were wounded. Rafiq Hariri was a very powerful politician in Lebanon and served as a Prime Minister from 1992-1998 and in the period of 2000-2004.

As a result, and with the approval of the Lebanese government, the UN Security Council created a commission of investigation. Under Council Resolution 1595 of 7 April 2005 has been established, the precursor to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, the UN International Independent Investigation Commission (UNIIIC), to help the Lebanese authorities in their investigation in relation to the assassinations of 14 February 2005. On 13 December 2005, after the second report the Government of Lebanon requested in a letter the assistance of the United Nations after the shared investigation to determine a ‘tribunal of an international character to try all those who are found responsible for the terrorist crime…’.

In response to the letter, the Security Council requested the Secretary-General to provide the needed assistance by consulting the Lebanese Government on the nature and scope of such a tribunal. The Tribunal has officially been opened on 1 March 2009. The Special Tribunal for Lebanon is the latest of a number of international and hybrid tribunals.  The negotiation about Resolution 1664 directed the Secretary-General to an agreement with the Government of Lebanon to create ‘a tribunal of an international character based on the highest international standards of criminal justice’.

The agreement on the establishment of the tribunal has been signed in 2007 by the United Nations and the Lebanese Government. The UN wanted to set upa treaty-based international institution that would be established by an agreement, just like the Special Court For Sierra Leone. The legal basis for the creation of the Special Tribunal is similar to the Cambodian Extraordinary Chambers and the Special Court for Sierra Leone. The Lebanon Tribunal is different unlike the other hybrid models. According to the bilateral treaty creating the Security Council has been decided that the court must be acting under Chapter VII. Thus, the Agreement on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and its Statute are annexed to Resolution 1757 of 30 May 2007, which declared that they entered into force on 10 June 2007.

The Resolution annexed a Statute and Agreement, both of which had been developed through negotiations between the government of Lebanon and the UN, but had not been ratified by the Lebanese Parliament due to domestic political deadlock. Resolution 1757 was strongly contested in the Security Council. It passed with 10 votes in favor, including Belgium, Congo, France, Ghana, Italy, Peru, Slovakia, The United States, and the United Kingdom, and five abstentions, by Qatar, South Africa, China, Russia, and Indonesia.Common objections included interference in domestic affairs and the fear that a Chapter VII resolution would further destabilize Lebanon. Underlying the UN membership no member state of the UN may refuse to admit the existence and functioning of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and should cooperate with it , by honesty of the general duty of cooperation with UN organs. On the other hand, when a trial against one of the persons falling under the international Tribunal for Lebanon’, Tribunal’s jurisdiction is held in a ‘third’ country, the ban on ne bis in idem does not apply, the international Tribunal may try that person again, when the national trial did not prove to be fair and effective.The Statute obligates a reduction on the personal and impermanent jurisdiction of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. The Special Tribunal for Lebanon has a narrow mandate.

In conformity with Article 1 of the Statute, the court is authorized to prosecute suspects allegedly responsible for the terrorist attack in Beirut. In addition, the tribunal has jurisdiction over other attacks between 1 October 2004 and 12 December 2005, or a later date to be decided by the Lebanon with the consent of the Security Council, if the tribunal decides they are connected ‘in accordance with the principles of criminal justice’ and are of a nature and gravity similar to the attack of 14 February 2005. The elements used to decide a connection with the Hariri assassination are defined under Article 1 as ‘criminal intent (motive), the purpose behind the attacks, the nature of the victims targeted, the pattern of the attacks (modus operandi) and the perpetrators’.

The Statute of the Lebanon Tribunal does not limit the Tribunal’s jurisdiction based on the nationality of the accused. The narrow mandate of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon is somewhat peculiar for a tribunal, since the (other) international criminal tribunals or internationalized courts are created to prosecute people responsible for committing gross human rights violations and mass atrocities. Perhaps it is not that strange a tribunal is set up in this situation, because of the symbolic importance of the Hariri assassination, as it resulted in commotion and status of Lebanese politicians.

The International Criminal Court Collection

This publication acknowledges the International Criminal Court as one of the most important international legal institutes that carry out universal standards concerning human rights. It provides the reader with a broad range of vital legal information for those interested in the history, background, cases, trials and legal proceedings of the International Criminal Court.  The International Criminal Court (ICC) is an independent, permanent court that tries persons accused of the most serious crimes of international concern, namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The United Nations called for the establishment of an international court a half-century ago, and many tribunals — including the one in Nuremberg after World War II — were to become the predecessors of the ICC. This is one of the most important human rights developments since establishment of the United Nations itself. Having a uniform approach to prosecuting crimes against humanity means that there is greater potential to ensure equal justice for all and consistency in how international law is applied. Representatives of 139 countries approved the Court`s creation, showing there is agreement among a growing majority of nations on how to go after the Pol Pots of the world.

The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (‘Charter’) lists 50 fundamental rights that apply to dignity, freedom, equality, solidarity, citizenship and justice in the European Union (‘EU’). Since the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty on 1 December 2009, the Charter has been legally binding on the institutions of the EU and on Member States, only when they are implementing Union Law. The Charter exists 10 years. Several questions about the Charter have been clarified, such as the status of the Charter and the significance of the Charter on national legal orders. There is a vast amount of case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union in which the Charter has proven its value, and national courts are increasingly applying the Charter in national proceedings too. Although many questions have already been addressed, the Charter is still in full development and questions remain about the scope of the Charter, the interpretation of ‘new’ fundamental rights included in the Charter; the restrictions that are possible to fundamental rights deriving from the Charter; and the relation with the European Convention on Human Rights. Ultimately, it is up to the domestic courts to interpret the Charter; not only the Court of Justice of the European Union, but also the national judge increasingly is confronted with the Charter. With the publication of this book, a further dimension is provided to the discussion and development concerning fundamental rights protection in the EU and national practice. With the contributions present in this bundle, developments are closely followed in the triangle Luxembourg-Brussels-Strasbourg. This collection aims to provide guidance to practice and academics. The publication contains annotated judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union from the period 2016-2018, commenting on landmark cases in which the Charter was central to the dictum of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Product Description

In some jurisdictions, early release is automatic at a certain point in time; in others, it is discretionarily decided by a court or an executive authority; others still have a mixed system and, increasingly, others opt for mandatory post-release supervision with the hope of better controlling dangerous offenders. In some cases, due process applies and the independence of decision-makers is viewed as being paramount; in others such principles are deemed inapplicable. Some legal systems consider that release – , and breach issues – are part of a penal continuum that starts with arrest; in others, they are perceived as
belonging to the executive and as being strictly distinct from penal issues.

This book endeavours to understand these differences and tries and assess whether one perspective is superior to another. It wonders which one is fairer and more effi cient. It questions what efficiency means: freeing prison space, reducing reoffending, supporting rehabilitation, and/or being legitimate and fair? It wonders to what extent the answers to such questions are relative to culture, to penology choices (punitive, or not), and to the legal history and structure (e.g. written law or common law; adversarial versus non adversarial). It analyses whether due process should be taken into consideration. It also asks whether a legal system can afford due process in overcrowded and penniless times.

Thanks to the contribution of renown authors with various backgrounds, this book tries and answer these contentious issues, by drawing upon comparative and international law, empirical (outcome) literature, legitimacy of justice theory, therapeutic jurisprudence legal doctrine, and best practices (e.g. Danish collaborative reentry, drug courts or French reentry courts).

About the editor: Martine Herzog-Evans teaches law and criminology at Reims University, France. She also teaches at the Universities of Paris II and Bordeaux IV/Pau/National Prison Academy. Her majors are criminal law, sentences, probation, prisons and reentry. She is a member of the European Society of Criminology and works with three of its subgroups: Community Sentences and Measures; Sentencing; and Prisons. She is also a member of the Decision-Making group of the EU COST action “Offender Supervision in Europe”. She has consulted with the French National Assembly, the Senate, these assemblies’ law commissions, the French National Human Rights Commission, and the prison services, and worked as an expert for the Council of Europe.

Product Description

Dit boek behandelt het leerstuk van de directe werking van de grondrechten van de Europese Unie. De rechtspraak van het Hof van Justitie van de Europese Unie (het Hof) neemt  hierbij een centrale plaats in. In het boek is de stand van het recht (inclusief openstaande vragen) in kaart gebracht. Het bevat tevens een beschouwing van de legitimiteit van de rechtspraak van het Hof en wel met name in het licht van het beginsel van allocatie van bevoegdheden.

Het boek bestaat uit twee hoofddelen. Een deel dat ziet op de directe werking van Uniegrondrechten in de relatie tussen particulieren en nationale overheden (‘verticale directe werking’) en een deel dat gaat over de directe werking van Uniegrondrechten in de relatie tussen particulieren onderling (‘horizontale directe werking’). Er wordt uitgebreid ingegaan op artikel 51, lid 1, van het Handvest van de Grondrechten van de Europese Unie dat bepalend is voor de vraag in welke situaties sprake is van de directe werking van Uniegrondrechten. De betekenis van deze bepaling wordt verhelderd door een inventarisatie van de verschillende artikel 51-situaties. Tevens is een analyse gemaakt van de nieuwe benadering van het Hof inzake de horizontale directe werking in de arresten Mangold en Kücükdeveci, waarbij onder meer toepassingsvereisten zijn geformuleerd. Het boek bevat tot slot een reeks van aanbevelingen die zich primair richten tot het Hof, maar die tevens kunnen dienen als leidraad voor de nationale rechters en procespartijen, alsmede voor de actoren in Hofzaken.

Dit boek laat zien dat het contrast tussen de rechtspraak inzake de verticale directe werking en de horizontale directe werking van Uniegrondrechten groot is. Het leerstuk van de verticale directe werking van Uniegrondrechten is al een eind op stoom en is tot wasdom gekomen. Zowel het bestaan van verticale directe werking als de uitwerking ervan is gelegitimeerd. Het leerstuk van de horizontale directe werking staat daarentegen nog in de kinderschoenen. Er is slechts een handvol rechtspraak met veel losse eindjes. Bij de legitimiteit ervan kunnen bovendien kritische kanttekeningen worden geplaatst.

Taak en taakopvatting van de rechter in de westerse wereld

Product Description

In dit boek vergelijkt de auteur, emeritus-hoogleraar burgerlijk recht en Anglo-Amerikaans recht, de wijze van rechtsvinding in vijf landen van de westerse wereld, te weten de Verenigde Staten, Nederland, Duitsland, Engeland en Frankrijk, en bepleit de noodzaak van een meer pragmatische rechtsvinding.

Pragmatisme houdt in dat gestreefd moet worden naar beslissingen met een aanvaardbare uitkomst. De realisten predikten in de jaren dertig hun rule and fact scepticism en voorzagen het pragmatisme van een theoretisch kader. Na de oorlog is het pragmatisme vanuit de VS overgewaaid naar Duitsland. Sinds 1970 oordeelt de Nederlandse rechter meer en meer pragmatisch, waarmee een einde lijkt te zijn gekomen aan een tijdperk waarin Scholtens “Algemeen Deel” min of meer als maatstaf gold. Langzaam werd ingezien dat taal, geschiedenis en systeem van de wet teveel een barrière vormden voor de rechter om te komen tot een bevredigende beslissing. Het denken vanuit beginselen is steeds belangrijker geworden, mede onder invloed van het publiekrecht, het Europees recht en de mensenrechten.

Op basis van zijn onderzoek, waarbij ook aandacht voor de rechtsfilosofie en Wittgensteins taalfilosofie is voor de auteur maar één conclusie mogelijk: het recht moet dienstbaar zijn aan een maatschappij die altijd in beweging is en niet angstvallig vasthouden aan de wettekst!

 

Over constitutionele verhoudingen en manieren om een wetgever tot regelgeving aan te zetten

Mag de rechter de wetgever bevelen regels te stellen? Of verheft hij zich dan boven de wetgever op een wijze die niet past in onze Trias Politica? Wie zoveel mogelijk rechtsbescherming wil tegen een wetgever die niet doet wat hij moet doen, zal weinig bezwaren zien. Wie vooral oog heeft voor de institutionele verhoudingen, zal daarentegen fronsen bij de gedachte aan het wetgevingsbevel.

In de praktijk vindt de Afdeling bestuursrechtspraak van de Raad van State het geen probleem om een gemeenteraad te bevelen planregels aan te passen. De Hoge Raad weigert echter stellig de wetgever te bevelen, bijvoorbeeld om tegen de SGP op te treden. Het initiatief tot wetgeving is politiek van aard, volgens de Hoge Raad, en moet dat ook blijven als de wetgever zijn verplichtingen niet nakomt. Tegelijkertijd ziet diezelfde Hoge Raad er geen been in om op andere manieren zoveel mogelijk druk op de wetgever te zetten de wet te wijzigen.

Dit onderzoek stelt voor om een deel van die andere manieren om de wetgever tot regelgeving te bewegen te vatten onder het begrip

materieel wetgevingsbevel, te onderscheiden van de formele wetgevingsbevelen die de Afdeling dus wel en de Hoge Raad dus niet geeft. De vraag wordt dan: waarom geeft de Hoge Raad geen formele wetgevingsbevelen als hij wel materiële geeft?

Wat is de staatsrechtelijke positie van de (Europese) rechter? Deze vraag staat in toenemende mate ter discussie in het maatschappelijke nationale en Europese debat. De rechterlijke taakuitoefening lijkt op allerlei wijzen steeds meer onder een maatschappelijk vergrootglas te liggen, waarbij politici, opiniemakers en wetenschappers allemaal over de schouder van de rechter meekijken. Hoewel onderwerp een klassiek staatsrechtelijk thema is, is het laatste jaren steeds relevanter geworden en heeft het zich steeds meer op de aandacht van een breder publiek mogen verheugen. Deze bundel presenteert de drie preadviezen en coreferaten over het thema die uitgebracht zijn op de Staatsrechtdag voor promovendi en jonge juristen van 2012. Centraal staan daarbij vooral de vraag wat de rechterlijke arbeid eigenlijk toevoegt aan de arbeid van het bestuur en de vraag hoe actief of terughoudend het Europese Hof voor de Rechten van de Mens zich zou moeten opstellen. De bundel bevat verschillende analyses van de (on)zinnigheid van op de (Europese) gegeven kritiek, nadere preciseringen van wat de rechter wel of niet tot zijn taak zou moeten rekenen en aanbevelingen voor de nadere vormgeving van die taak. Daarmee beoogt de bundel bij te dragen aan nadere begripsvorming van de positie van de (Europese) rechter.

 

De taak van het openbaar ministerie tot tenuitvoerlegging van door de rechter opgelegde strafrechtelijke sancties vanuit constitutioneel en strafrechtsdogmatisch perspectief bezien

Product Description

De tenuitvoerlegging van door de rechter opgelegde sancties vormt het sluitstuk van de strafrechtspleging. Op grond van artikel 553 Sv hebben zowel het openbaar ministerie als de minister van Justitie een taak bij de tenuitvoerlegging van strafrechtelijke sancties. In dit boek staat deze taak centraal, beschreven vanuit het oogpunt van het openbaar ministerie. Daarbij besteedt de auteur onder meer aandacht aan de rolverdeling tussen de verschillende actoren die betrokken zijn bij de tenuitvoerlegging, en beschouwt zij deze verdeling ook in rechtshistorisch perspectief. Ter uitvoering van zijn taak bij de tenuitvoerlegging, kent de wet het openbaar ministerie discretionaire bevoegdheden toe. Middels onderzoek naar de tenuitvoerlegging van vier sancties, te weten de geldboete, de gevangenisstraf, de taakstraf en de ontnemingsmaatregel, komt de auteur tot een antwoord op de vraag hoe deze bevoegdheden worden genormeerd. De auteur sluit af met een beschouwing van de taak van het openbaar ministerie bij de tenuitvoerlegging in de toekomst.

Product Description

Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court established and vested the Court with the power to decide on reparations to victims. The concept of reparations to victims remains a controversial topic in international criminal law.

 

Does the Statute explicitly create victims’ right to reparations? How and why have we to distinguish between reparations under Article 75 and victim assistance or support from the Trust Fund created by Article 79 of the Statute? Does the Statute or international law embody substantive law to be applied to reparations to victims?

 

From a procedural perspective other questions arise: Has the Statute or the Court developed procedural law that allows to balance the interests of parties to proceedings before a court whose mission is primarily criminal? Where a conflict of jurisdiction arises between the International Criminal Court and national courts, as regards reparations against a convicted person, how can the risk be dispelled? What kind of reparations may redress victims of the most serious international crimes,

such as crime of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes? Does there exist an effective legal framework to facilitate the implementation of reparations orders issued by the Court?

 

This book endeavours to discuss the major legal issues arising from the introduction of the concept of reparations to victims in international criminal law. More particularly, the book describes challenges in implementing Article 75 of the Rome Statute and attempts to suggest legal solutions thereto.

Product Description

 

In dit boek wordt een jurisprudentieonderzoek besproken van ongeveer 4000 WIPO arbitrageuitspraken op het gebied van conflicten van registratie en gebruik van internetdomeinnamen.

In tegenstelling tot traditioneel jurisprudentieonderzoek betrof dit onderzoek een grootschalige structurele analyse, namelijk een juridisch-kwantitatief onderzoek. Bepaalde onderdelen van de analyse, zoals het verzamelen en verwerken van de benodigde (relevante) factoren, werden deels geautimatiseerd.

Voor juristen, onderzoekers, advocaten en rechters zou een dergelijke manier van analyseren in deze tijd van digitalisering en een steeds toenemend aantal rechterlijke uitspraken wel eens meer uitkomst kunnen bieden dan traditioneel jurisprudentieonderzoek.

‘Kwaliteit is op de eerste plaats goede mensen selecteren’ - Erik van den Emster, Voorzitter Raad voor de rechtspraak 2008

‘Kwaliteit van rechtspraak is vooral een eigenschap van de organisatie, niet van individuele rechters’. – Cees Schuyt, 2002

‘Kwaliteit van de organisatie is belangrijk, maar het moet uiteindelijk gaan om de kwaliteit van het primaire proces’. – E. van der Kam, 2000

Dit proefschrift handelt over het begrip kwaliteit in de context van rechtspraak en rechtspleging en de kwaliteitsbevorderende rol van de Raad voor de rechtspraak ten aanzien van rechtspraak en rechtspleging. In dit onderzoek zal een analysemodel annex toetsingskader worden ontwikkeld waarmee het begrip kwaliteit in rechtspraak en rechtspleging nader kan worden gedefinieerd en geoperationaliseerd en aan de hand waarvan de kwaliteitsbevorderende rol van de Raad systematisch kan worden verkend.

Hoe onafhankelijk is de rechter als politici zich in een rechtszaak mengen? Hendrik Gommer onderzocht deze vraag vanuit sociologische, psychologische, historische, antropologische en rechtswetenschappelijke invalshoek en bestudeerde veertien spraakmakende rechtszaken. Hij concludeert dat de scheiding der machten in Nederland in de praktijk eigenlijk niet bestaat. In reactie op een opmerking van VVD-kamerland Fred Teeven besloot de rechter tot strafvermindering voor de veroordeelde Holleeder. Volgens de rechter had de opmerking de verdachte `niet ten voordele gestrekt`. Werd de onpartijdigheid van de rechter hier werkelijk aangetast?

Promovendus Hendrik Gommer onderzocht deze vraag voor de Nederlandse rechtspraktijk vanuit vele invalshoeken. Zo ging hij na of de rechter wel onafhankelijk kan zijn, hoe hij tot zijn beslissing komt en waar zijn gezag van afhankelijk is. Ook bestudeerde hij veertien spraakmakende zaken, waaronder die tegen Menten en Lucia de B., en ondervroeg hij politici door middel van een enquête.

Gommer concludeert dat de trias politica in Nederland, de wetgevende macht (parlement), de uitvoerende macht (regering) en de rechterlijke macht (rechters), eigenlijk niet meer bestaat: in werkelijkheid kent Nederland veel meer machten. Deze machten werken bovendien als een organisch geheel op elkaar in. Een rechter zou onpartijdig en onafhankelijk moeten zijn, maar blijkt juist afhankelijk van talloze partijen. Zo heeft hij om tot een onpartijdig oordeel te komen de hulp nodig van overheid, politiek, deskundigen, media, collega`s, zijn sociale omgeving en ook zijn eigen persoonlijke ervaringen. Om daar een weg in te zoeken gaan rechters bovendien af op hun intuïtie, waarbij ze volgens Gommer soms ook fouten maken. Daarom zou deze intuïtie onderworpen moeten worden aan een kritische controle, stelt de promovendus. Dat kan volgens hem voor een belangrijk deel via het Project Motiveringsverbetering in Strafvonnissen (PROMIS), waarbij rechters worden aangespoord tot een heldere en gedegen motivering van hun beslissing. Nederlandse rechters laten zich echter niet zodanig beïnvloeden door uitspraken van individuele politici dat hun onpartijdigheid wordt aangetast, blijkt uit Gommers onderzoek. Zulke uitspraken vormen slechts één van de factoren die de rechter kunnen beïnvloeden, maar zij tasten het gezag van de rechter niet aan.

Uit het onderzoek onder leden van de Eerste en Tweede Kamer kwam bovendien naar voren dat het vertrouwen van de parlementariërs in de rechter hoog is. De meeste Kamerleden vinden dat zij zich terughoudend moeten opstellen ten opzichte van zaken die onder de rechter zijn. Alleen als een zaak veel publiciteit krijgt, bemoeien Kamerleden zich ermee: als het al gebeurt, is de aanleiding meestal een krantenbericht. Hij doet daarom de aanbeveling om niet al te krampachtig te reageren als politici weer eens reageren op een zaak die onder de rechter is.

Product Description

Deze oratie gaat over de relatie van de rechterlijke macht met politiek en bestuur, en de relatie van de rechterlijke macht met de bevolking. Aan de orde komen onder andere de bemoeienis van de rechter met wetgeving, het vertrouwen in de rechterlijke macht, het risico van een populistische revolte tegen de rechterlijke macht en het belang van onderzoek naar de visies van mensen op het rechtssysteem. Een van de conclusies is dat een consequente scheiding tussen rechterlijke macht en politiek en bestuur van veel groter belang is dan vaak wordt aangenomen.

De auteur neemt in deze oratie de lezer mee naar die periferie van het recht, naar de interactie tussen recht en samenleving, waar het recht zijn plaats en inhoud vindt.In Nederland heeft die samenleving de vorm van een democratische rechtsstaat. Deze staatsvorm heeft drie belangrijke kenmerken, namelijk binding van de staat aan het recht, spreiding van de staatsmacht en betrokkenheid van de gehele bevolking bij de collectieve besluitvorming. Deze kenmerken zijn onderling verbonden. Door de spreiding van de staatsmacht, bijvoorbeeld, worden de drie machten gestimuleerd om ieder afzonderlijke te dingen naar draagvlak en vertrouwen, hetgeen de betrokkenheid van de bevolking bevordert. Hierdoor ontstaat het democratisch evenwicht tussen overheidselite en volk, tussen staat en straat.

Professor de Groot van Leeuwen richt zich in deze oratie op de twee laatstgenoemde kenmerken van de democratische rechtsstaat en in het bijzonder – daar het hier om de aanvaarding van een leerstoel rechtspleging gaat – op de rechterlijke macht. Allereerst gaat ze in op de relatie van de rechterlijke macht met de andere twee machten in de staat. Daarna komt de samenstelling van de rechterlijke macht aan de orde; deze is zowel voor de relatie van de rechterlijke macht met politiek en bestuur van belang alsook voor de relatie met de bevolking. Vervolgens verschuift de aandacht naar het vertrouwen en het wantrouwen in het rechtssysteem, die essentieel zijn voor de relatie tussen rechters en bevolking. Rechters tussen staat en straat dus, tussen overheid en bevolking.

Conclusie:... Ik heb uiteengezet dat er door allerlei mechanismen en praktijken bij de rechterlijke macht de vanzelfsprekende neiging bestaat om dicht tegen de mede-juristen in de andere onderdelen van de trias aan te kruipen. Het zou goed zijn om deze neiging te weerstreven en juist veel aandacht te schenken aan de relatie met de bevolking. Elk uur besteed aan samenwerking in de trias kan immers niet besteed worden aan de rechtspraak zelf en, mede langs die weg, aan de relatie met de bevolking. Maar sterker nog, ieder uur besteed aan die samenwerking vormt een risico voor de relatie met de bevolking, omdat samenwerking het wantrouwen voedt. Voor het onderhoud van het vertrouwen in de rechter is het van groot belang dat de rechterlijke macht zich niet zozeer laat leiden door de eigen intuïties en evidenties over wat mensen zien en willen, maar zich baseert op wetenschappelijk inzicht in leefwereld, normen, visies en ervaringen van de bevolking, van wie het merendeel laagopgeleid is.

De discussie over de rechterlijke organisatie in Nederland kenmerkt zich de laatste jaren door een grote aandacht voor aspecten als transparantie, effectiviteit en efficiëntie. Tegelijkertijd dient met het oog op de legitimiteit van de rechtspraak aandacht te blijven voor het behoud van verworven rechtsstatelijke waarborgen van rechterlijke onafhankelijkheid en onpartijdigheid. De recente moderniseringsdebatten in Nederland, en ook in andere moderne rechtsstaten, komen hiermee in het teken te staan van het vinden van een nieuw evenwicht van uitgangspunten voor de rechterlijke organisatie.

In dit boek wordt de discussie over de modernisering van de rechterlijke organisatie in Nederland, Frankrijk en Duitsland geanalyseerd vanuit een constitutioneel perspectief. Beoogd wordt aan te geven welke plaats nieuwe kwaliteitseisen – dat wil zeggen ‘new public management’-beginselen – in het constitutionele kader innemen ten opzichte van klassiek-rechtsstatelijke beginselen.

Een rechtsvergelijkende analyse biedt aanknopingspunten om het constitutionele afwegingskader van beginselen in kaart te brengen en de implicaties voor de invoering van nieuwe oplossingen voor de rechterlijke organisatie te schetsen.

Inhoud:
Inleiding - Op zoek naar een balans: een nieuw perspectief op uitgangspunten voor de rechterlijke organisatie

Product Description

Er wordt steeds opnieuw geschreven en gepraat over de wenselijkheid van deelname van burgers aan de rechtspraak, in het bijzonder de strafrechtspraak. Rechters zonder toga geeft een beschrijving van de vormen van lekenrechtspraak en een overzicht van hun ontstaanswijzen. Daarnaast bekijkt Tak op welke overwegingen ten grondslag hebben gelegen aan het onstaan van de twee hoofdvormen van lekenrechtspraak. Tot slot wordt de werking van de lekenrechtspraak in het strafrecht nader toegelicht. Hoe kan lekenrechtspraak eigenlijk gerealiseerd worden?

Professor Peter J.P. Tak is internationaal erkend als specialist op het gebied van strafrechtsvergelijking. In de media zien we hem vaak om uitleg te geven over strafzaken, waaronder de Deventer moordzaak, en de zaken rondom de Hells Angels en de Hofstadgroep. Naast zijn werk als redacteur bij Nederlandse Jurisprudentie en internationale tijdschriften, is hij Secretary General van de International Penal and Penitentiary Foundation, een strafrechtelijke vereniging met een consultatieve status bij de VN en de Raad van Europa.

Product Description

Het idee dat de rechterlijke macht zoveel mogelijk een afspiegeling van de samenleving moet vormen heeft in Nederland een lange geschiedenis. Wel worden steeds andere kenmerken relevant geacht. Werd aanvankelijk vooral naar diversiteit in regionale herkomst gestreefd, later werd meer naar de kerkelijke gezindte, sociale herkomst en politieke kleur van rechters gekeken. De laatste decennia zijn steeds meer vrouwen tot rechter benoemd.

Een kenmerk dat de komende jaren waarschijnlijk aan belang zal winnen, is de etnische afkomst van rechters. Momenteel zijn deze ‘nieuwkomers’ nog nauwelijks vertegenwoordigd in de rechterlijke macht in Nederland. Hoe is dat in andere landen? Zijn daar al meer rechters uit etnische minderheden benoemd? Welke omstandigheden belemmeren of begunstigen de toetreding van ‘nieuwkomers’ tot de rechterlijke macht? Dergelijke vragen worden in dit boek beantwoord.

Het boek is gebaseerd op onderzoek in Nederland, Frankrijk, Duitsland, Engeland, de Verenigde Staten en Canada. Anita Böcker en Leny de Groot-van Leeuwen zijn beiden rechtssocioloog.

Product Description

Een onderzoeksrapport naar de alledaagse communicatie tijdens zittingen van de rechtbank, die natuurlijk door zijn gedwongen setting niet zo alledaags is. In hun inleiding laten de onderzoekers een lichte verbazing doorklinken over het beeld van de rechtbank Utrecht (niet grijs en ambtelijk, maar kleurig, flitsend en wervend, hun woorden, niet de mijne!). Die verbazing is niet nodig als men bedenkt dat de rechtbank Utrecht in zijn strategische agenda voor de komende jaren zich onder andere richt op een herkenbaar en expliciet gezicht van de rechtbank naar de samenleving.

Het onderzoek vormt een kwalitatief observatieonderzoek naar drie veel voorkomende typen zittingen in drie sectoren (handel, kanton en straf) en is een welkome aanvulling op en verdieping van al bekende informatie uit klantwaarderingsonderzoeken en klantenpanels. Het is goed bruikbaar als middel ter ondersteuning van intervisie en feedback, langzamerhand vertrouwde middelen om te reflecteren op het rechterlijk functioneren.Het rapport verlevendigt de instelling van de rechters de persoonlijke invulling van het rechterlijk ambt volstrekt ernstig te nemen en in het rechterlijk optreden het juiste midden te vinden tussen afstandelijkheid en betrokkenheid.

Wat dit onderzoek zo interessant maakt zijn de soms verbatim-achtige beschrijvingen van delen van zittingen en de reacties van rechters, rechtzoekenden en rechtshelpers daarop.
