At the meeting of President of the European Court of Human Rights Guido Raimondi and President of the Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) Eiki Nestor, issues connected with the overburdening of the Court of Human Rights and the role of national parliaments in ensuring human rights were discussed.

The case of Delfi AS, which had been discussed in the Court of Human Rights and concerned the liability of the Internet news portal for user comments posted online, and the amendment that had entered into force in Russia and allows the Russian Constitutional Court to declare a ruling of an international court impossible for implementation if it contradicts the Constitution of Russia were also spoken about at the meeting.

Nestor and Raimondi also talked about the ratification of Protocol No. 16 to the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms by Estonia, which would allow the Supreme Court of Estonia to request the European Court of Human Rights to give advisory opinions.

Today Raimondi also met with the President of the Republic Kersti Kaljulaid, and tomorrow he will attend the Estonian Lawyers’ Days in Tartu.
