    Podgorica, Montenegro (20 May 2017) — Representative of Montenegro before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg Valentina Pavličić presented earlier today the public report on the work of the Office of the Representative of Montenegro before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in 2016.

    Ms Pavličić said that one of the Office of the Representative’s duties is to supervise the execution of judgments of the European Court of Justice, that is to enforce the judgements together with the state authorities of Montenegro that took part in the proceedings.

    “We adopt action plans and action reports in which we present to the Committee of Ministers our responsibilities and our views regarding the execution of such judgments. I would like to point out that in 2016 all 10 cases for which action plans and action reports have been approved are already resolved. Compared to the neighbouring countries, we are in a much better position. For instance, Croatia, which is a member of the EU, has nearly 200 non-enforced cases in which the stare cannot find a common language with the Committee of Ministers concerning the admissibility of the measures it has taken. We do have the pleasure to point out that such is not the case with Montenegro,” said Valentina Pavličić.

    She explained that Montenegro submitted another 5 action plans in addition to those which had been closed by the resolutions, adding that these action plans have been approved, that decisions have been made, and that the final closure will be done in 2017.

    “At the moment the state of Montenegro does not have a single outstanding case in terms of individual or general measures, there is no case that is under special supervision of the Committee as it is the case with Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and other countries in the region, and there are no cases in which systematic violations have been identified. In that regard, we are on the right track to apply the European Court’s practice,“ Representative of Montenegro before the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg Valentina Pavličić stressed.
