Cases pending before the Grand Chamber

Exceptional measures

On account of the Covid-19 health crisis the Court has had to introduce special measures for holding its public hearings, valid until further notice. All oral submissions will be made by videoconference, and hearings at the Human Rights Building will not be open to the public. However, since all hearings are filmed in their entirety, the video recording will be available on the Court’s website the day after each hearing.
