Following the recent debacle in the UK concerning the radical muslim cleric Abhu Katada, has the ECHR gone too far interfering in the politics of another country by forbidding his extradition to his homeland of Jordan.
It would seem that the 'rights' of the victims are being trodden on in favour of the perpetrators, time & time again the individual rights of criminals are causing distress to the victims & their families as the ECHR ensures that only the rights of the 'criminal' are to be considered, it would appear that victims have no rights.
The British government is drawing up a bill which will result(if passed in the Commons & Lords) in a withdrawal from the ECHR in favour of a British charter on human rights.
There are currently 160,000 outstanding cases awaiting rulings at ECHR, estimated to take 12 to 15 years to attend to, with more adding to it every day. In the UK they allow people awaiting deportation to stay in the country whilst they appeal to the ECHR. With a national charter these cases will be dealt with much swifter, benefiting those that should have the right to stay aswell as benefiting the tax payers that would otherwise have to pay the welfare bill of the those that should be deported, as anyone designated for deportation is forbidden to work.
