  • the Court shall apply the new admissibility criterion by establishing a case-law allowing to define the legal terms which state this criterion on the basis of an interpretation establishing objective critera of definition (paragraphs 79 et 80);

  • the new criteron is designed to avoid rejection of cases warranting an examination on the merits (paragraph 83);

  • the single-judge formations and committees will not be able to apply the new critera in the absence of a clear and well established case-law of the Court's Chambers and Grand Chamber (paragraph 84).

Duitsland, 29 mei 2009

The Government of the Federal Republic of Germany declares that the Federal Republic of Germany accepts in its respect the provisional application of the following provisions of Protocol No. 14 to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, amending the control system of the Convention, in accordance with the agreement reached by the States Parties to the European Convention on Human Rights in Madrid on 12 May 2009:

  • 1. The new admissibility criterion may not be applied to reject such applications, which examination would otherwise be important for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms as defined in the Convention and the Protocols thereto, as well as to reject such applications, which have not been duly considered by a domestic tribunal.

  • 2. The single-judge formations and committees will be able to apply the new admissibility criterion only after the Court's Chambers and Grand Chamber develop their case-law on this subject.

  • 3.
