The Republic of Lithuania declares that it recognises, for a period of three years, the competence of the European Commission of Human Rights to receive petitions from any person, non-governmental organisation or group of individuals.

The Republic of Lithuania declares that it recognises, for a period of three years, as compulsory ipso facto the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights in all matters concerning the interpretation and application of the Convention.

The declarations of the Republic of Lithuania, made in accordance with Articles 25 and 46 of the Convention [see Article 34 of the Convention since the entry into force of Protocol No. 11] will apply also to Protocols No. 4 and No. 7 to the Convention.

[Notes by the Secretariat: The letter from the Permanent Representative of Lithuania, dated 1 March 1996, reads as follows: "Because of an administrative oversight, the declaration which was made in accordance with Article 25, paragraph 1, of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania, when ratifying it on 20 June 1995, has omitted to mention the "non-governmental organisations" and "groups of individuals" referred to in Article 25.
Accordingly, whishing to correct this error, the Government of the Republic of Lithuania hereby declares that it rectifies its declaration by introducing after the expression "from any person" the following words: ", non-governmental organisation or group of individuals".
The Government of the Republic of Lithuania confirms that this declaration applies also to Protocols No. 4 and No. 7 to the Convention.


These declarations were renewed for the period between 20 June 1998 until the date of entry into force of Protocol No. 11 by a letter from the Permanent Representative of Lithuania, dated 17 June 1998, registered at the Secretariat General on 19 June 1998 - Or. Engl. ]
