Bulgaria: BNR: Fewer Judgements against Bulgaria at European Court of Human Rights in 2019

For the first time since 1996 Bulgaria has dropped out of the top 10 of countries with the most judgements against the country in the European Court of Human Rights, the court’s annual report shows, BNR reported.

The list of countries with the greatest number of judgements is topped by Russia, (186), followed by Ukraine (109), Turkey (97), Romania (56), Moldova (39) Hungary (36) and Greece (23).

The total number of pending cases at the European Court of Human Rights for 2019 is 59,800, a quarter of them being against Russia.
