Inadmissiblity decision concerning Romania

Human Rights building
04/07/24

The Court declared the application in the case of Ceort v. Romania inadmissible.

The case concerned the criminal conviction of a public prosecutor at the High Court of Cassation and Justice, for soliciting a bribe. Relying on the right to a fair trial of the Convention, the applicant complained that the criminal proceedings against him had been unfair.

The Court found that the applicant had failed to exhaust domestic remedies for his complaints concerning his lawyers’ access to his case file and his first-instance conviction by a “nonspecialised” three-judge bench. It also found that his allegations regarding the evidence, the use of a co-defendant’s statements and police entrapment were manifestly ill-founded.
