PostSubject: Lord Judge urges more UK discretion on human rights   Wed Nov 16, 2011 10:42 am


By Gavin Stamp Political reporter, BBC News


England and Wales' top judge says courts have tended to interpret the judgements of the European Court of Human Rights "too closely".

Lord Judge said a lot of ECHR rulings related only to specific cases and did not set wider legal precedents.

The government has set up a commission to look at the case for introducing a British Bill of Rights amid concerns about certain ECHR judgements.

Lord Judge said it was up to Parliament, not judges, to decide.

The role of the European Court of Human Rights and its judicial reach has become increasingly controversial following a series of judgements - such as on the right of prisoners to vote - opposed by the UK Parliament.

The way in which British judges are interpreting the European Convention on Human Rights - which the court seeks to uphold - has also become contentious with Home Secretary Theresa May and Justice Secretary Ken Clarke clashing over the issue recently.
