[JURIST] A declassified intergovernmental report obtained by the British newspaper The Independent says that Britain has one of the poorest human rights records in Europe, and that the UK is under investigation for non-compliance with European rights standards. The report, issued by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe [official website], reveals that Britain is one of 4 European nations under investigation for not properly addressing a series of judgments issued by the European Court of Human Rights [official website], including 15 cases that have gone unaddressed for nearly 5 years. To date, the court has issued 107 guilty rulings in complaints filed against the British government for violations under the European Convention on Human Rights, of which the UK is a signatory. The report also says further remedial action on human rights is necessary in Russia, Ukraine and Turkey. The Independent has more.
