Coronavirus: Exceptional measures at the European Court of Human Rights

The European Court of Human Rights has announced a series of exceptional measures in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The court will maintain its essential activities, especially its handling of priority cases. It will also consider urgent requests for interim measures when there is an imminent risk of irreversible harm.

The six-month deadline for lodging applications and all time limits relating to pending cases have been extended by one month, as of 16 March.

The court will be closed to the public, and all hearings scheduled for March and April are cancelled.
