Press releases publication
All press releases issued by the Registry since 1 January 1999 are available in the Hudoc database. They include summaries of judgments and decisions delivered by the Court and information about cases pending and about the Court’s activities in general. Press releases are always available in both English and French and are in PDF format.
Press releases on the Court’s judgments are published at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays (when judgments are delivered). These press releases are announced a week in advance with a short summary of the cases concerned.
Hearings are announced during the preceding month.
