Soudní novinky 18/16 (Do Maďarska ne!)

  • Asylum transfers to Hungary get the axe ("A high court in Finland this week issued the latest in a string of European rulings on suspension of asylum seeker transfers to Hungary. (..) Courts in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, and Switzerland have issued similar judgements against Hungary.") 
  • Dutch ruling on Yukos was political, Khodorkovsky says ("A Dutch court has overturned a $50 billion award against Russia over its break-up of oil firm Yukos, prompting the company’s former CEO to accuse judges of playing politics. (..) Russia had signed and provisionally applied the pact but never ratified it, meaning, the district court said, that international arbitrators “lacked jurisdiction."")
  • Hillsborough inquests: Fans unlawfully killed, jury concludes ("The jury decided the match commander Ch Supt David Duckenfield's actions amounted to "gross negligence" due to a breach of his duty of care to fans. Police errors also added to a dangerous situation at the FA Cup semi-final. After a 27-year campaign by victims' families, the behaviour of Liverpool fans was exonerated.")
  • Editorial NYT: Voting Rights Lose in North Carolina ("Late Monday, a federal district judge upheld one of the most regressive and restrictive voting laws in the country — a 2013 North Carolina law that eliminated same-day voter registration and preregistration for 16- and 17-year-olds; cut back on early voting by a week; barred counting votes cast outside voters’ home precincts; and required voters to show identification at the polls. State lawmakers said these changes were necessary to reduce fraud and inefficiency in elections — though there is no evidence of voter fraud to combat or inefficiency to cure.")
  • Colombia's top court has legalized same-sex marriage, making the country the fourth in Latin America to do so. Gay couples were already allowed to form civil partnerships, but Thursday’s ruling extends them the same marriage rights as heterosexual couples.
