Human rights are universal and compliance is expected under international law, regional as well as national legislations. The European Convention on Human Rights applies to every individual by virtue of their very existence. The fundamental right to life, protection from torture, right to privacy, liberty and security, discrimination, right to fair trail and other rights and protection under Article 3 of the ECHR are therefore applicable to every man, woman and child regardless of their status in life. Regrettably however, it is not uncommon for even those who are supposed to be the custodians of the law to err by basing their judgment on sentiments rather than the law. As such we have found that human rights protection and compliance with statute when it comes to criminal matters is not always in accurate alignment with the provisions of the law.
Although the more common human rights cases we have dealt with are related to the right to a fair trial, other human rights cases involving discrimination against clients, any form of torture in the course of interrogation, the right to life, liberty and security are also quite common in criminal law matters. As our human rights specialists confirms to both existing and potential clients, “the protection of your human rights does not cease to matter simply because you are facing allegations of a criminal offence or even because you have been found guilty of the same”. If at any time, you or your loved ones have been given cause to question the treatment meted out to you by the Police, any investigating authorities, the judicial system as a whole and even in prison, you may have a potential human rights abuse case.
