JUSTICE AS IT IS
We are pleased to present you the summary of the report from the interregional project of monitoring of the accessibility of courts to Ukrainian citizens. The monitoring was conducted by the regional public foundation of human rights ‘Right and democracy (Lviv, Ukraine) in Lviv, Vinnitsa, Simferopol, Chernigiv. The project was sponsored by the Helsinki foundation of human rights in Warsaw, the International fund ‘Vidrodjennia, Open Society Institute (Budapest).
The results of the monitoring are very disturbing since, at the brink of the court reform that, according to the Constitution, has to completed by 28 June 2001, the Ukraine does not fulfil even partly Article 6 of the European Convention of human rights.
The foundation ‘Right and democracy plans to continue the work in this direction.
We shall be grateful to everybody for the feedback.
