    Interim measures in case concerning France

    On an application from Vincent Lambert’s parents in particular, the Court has decided to grant the request for interim measures under Rule 39 of the Rules of Court. It has therefore requested that the French Government provisionally stay the execution of the judgment of the Conseil d’Etat authorising the discontinuance of Vincent Lambert’s nutrition and hydration. This interim measure is applied pending the Court’s ruling on the admissibility and merits of the case, without prejudging the outcome of the proceedings.
