Judge from Ukraine became the President of the ECHR Section

Ukrainian judge Anna Yudkovska was elected the President of the Section and Bureau member of the European Court for Human Rights (ECHR).

It was stated RBC-Ukraine by Georgiy Logvynskiy, Ukrainian MP and Deputy Head of Ukrainian Permanent Delegation to PACE.
It should be noted that judges representing so-called “young democracies” are rarely elected for this office and Anna Yudkovska became the second ECHR judge representing a non-EU Eastern European country in the Court’s history.

Ms. Yudkovska will be chairing in all sessions led by the Section; she will join the lineup of the Grand Chamber during the consideration of all cases by the Court, and examine appeals for the Grand Chamber’s reconsideration of decisions made by the ECHR in the composition of the relevant judicial panel.

As is known, 17 350 applications filed against Ukraine is under consideration of the ECHR as of June 30, 2016, i.e. 24.4% of the total number of appeals to be considered by the Court (71 050).
