Liberte Info informs and challenges the ECHR
Elmer had filed the complaint in 2008 which was recently turned down by a decision of a single judge not allowing Elmer any way of appeal.
The lightness of the decision on this case where the stakes are very high - especially at a time where most European states are under tight economic conditions, if not plain austerity; Let us remind that tax evasion allows trillion to escape taxation worldwide, and many trillion only for Europe - is surprising: indeed the European Convention of human rights, which guides the court's work, states in its article 26 that cases ought to be considered by a single-judge formation, committees of three judges, Chambers of seven judges, or Grand Chambers of seventeen judges. Elmer's application has been reviewed only by a single judge, Julia Laffranque.
