AIS addresses the Strasbourg Court. Albania does not guarantee trial within a reasonable time (Article 6 of the ECHR)
On 25th of November 2015, AIS made an appeal to the Administrative Court of Appeal concerning its court case “AIS vs. Socialist Party, Democratic Party, and the Socialist Movement for Integration". The case is about public information on electoral funds. On 10th of February and 31st of March 2016, the Court was asked by a written request to accelerate its judicial process. A delay of such case for years makes its adjudication irrelevant. AIS, however, has not received any information regarding its request or any potential date of adjudication. Albania does not have a law on the delay/dragging on of court cases, nor effective remedies are provided for in its domestic legislation. Under such circumstances, AIS addressed the Strasbourg Court by requestin it to express its views on the adjudication process of the abovementioned case and whether there are any violations of Articles 6 and 13 of the European Convention of Human Rights.
