Text adopted by the Assembly on 24 January 2012 (4th Sitting).
The Parliamentary Assembly, referring
to its Resolution 1856
on guaranteeing the authority and effectiveness
of the European Convention on Human Rights, strongly urges the Committee
of Ministers, as the statutory guarantor of the supervisory system’s
viability, to ensure that:
Council of Europe’s difficult financial predicament is tackled at
the highest political level to enable the Organisation to implement
its human rights mandate effectively;
1.2 both the Assembly and national parliaments are fully involved
in the implementation of the “Interlaken process”, and are provided
with the opportunity to scrutinise State reports submitted in this context.
2. Furthermore, the Assembly urges the Committee of Ministers
to address a recommendation to the member States calling on them
to reinforce without delay, by legislative, judicial or other means,
the interpretative authority (res interpretata)
of the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights.
