Council of Europe: Judges adopt recommendations on counter-terrorism and human rights

During its seventh plenary session held in Strasbourg from 8 to 10 November, the Consultative Council of European Judges (CCJE), an advisory body of the Council of Europe, adopted an opinion on the role of judges in the protection of the rule of law and human rights in the context of terrorism. The CCJE recommended states not to establish special tribunals or adopt legislation incompatible with universally recognized human rights and to adhere to the fundamental principles of criminal law in terrorism cases.
