Le plaidoyer d’Emmanuel Macron pour la Cour Européenne des Droits de l’Homme

Le 31 octobre à Strasbourg, le Président français, Emmanuel Macron, a affirmé son attachement à la Convention Européenne des Droits de l’Homme ainsi qu’à la Cour qui assure son application.

Dans un discours de plus d'une heure qu'il a tenu devant les juges de la Cour, le Président de la République a souligné que « la bonne exécution des arrêts de la Cour est essentielle à la défense de son autorité. A cet égard, la France rappelle de façon constante son attachement à la force obligatoire des arrêts de la Cour Européenne des Droits de l’Homme dans le cadre du suivi assuré par le Comité des ministres. »

The Awards amount to more than $50 billion, a measure of the company’s success before it was destroyed.

    Tim Osborne, GML’s chief executive, commented on today’s ruling: “This is a victory for the rule of law. The independent courts of a democracy have shown their integrity and served justice. A brutal kleptocracy has been held to account.”
