While the so-called preliminary hearings usually take place behind closed doors, our proceedings have a unique characteristic:
Since 3 December 2022, trial observers from renowned human rights organisations have had access to our hearings. They attend every hearing and document the entire course of the proceedings. The group consists of ECCHR, Amnesty International, Giuristi Democratici, Swiss Democratic Lawyers, European Democratic Lawyers and the European Association of Lawyers for Democracy & World Human Rights.
The trial observers prepare comprehensive reports on each hearing which they publish on ECCHR website a few days after the hearing. This reports can be viewed in its original form on the ECCHR website: Sea rescues: Iuventa
Here we mirror these reports, the content of which is the sole responsibility of the trial observers.
