Mc. Farlane vs. Ireland, European Court of Human Rights

The European Court of Human Rights (Grand Chamber) has decided yesterday a case concerning the lenght of criminal proceedings (more than 14 years) and the lack of an effective remedy for the victim of this violation to the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms against Ireland.
