Forthcoming ruling in a Grand Chamber case
The Court will be delivering a Grand Chamber ruling in the case of Communauté genevoise d’action syndicale (CGAS) v. Switzerland on 27 November 2023.
The case concerns an association which complains of being deprived of the right to organise and participate in public events following the adoption of government measures to tackle COVID-19 under Ordinance O.2 COVID-19, enacted by the Swiss Federal Council on 13 March 2020. On the basis of that ordinance, public and private events were prohibited with effect from 16 March 2020. Failure to comply with the prohibition was punishable by a custodial sentence or a fine.
