Abstract: With the Treaty of Lisbon, which amends Article 6(2) of the Treaty on the European Union (TEU), and obliges the European Union (EU) to accede to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), and with the Draft Accession Agreement being finalised, the accession of the EU to the ECHR seems to be close at hand. However, the question still remains whether the EU, with its specific legal order, will be able to function in the ECHR system. On the basis of the Draft Accession Agreement, this article critically analyses the accession from a procedural point of view in order to anticipate on what the protection of human rights will look like after the accession and to underline the procedural difficulties that remain unanswered, while at the same time making some suggestions on how to overcome these difficulties.

Abstract: The establishment of procedures without a possibility of appeal has emerged as a means to speed up criminal prosecutions. In order to try to compensate for the loss of challenging a decision, typical of a single-judge court, multi-judge courts have been created by the constitution. However, Article 8(2)(h) of the American Convention on Human Rights establishes the right to fully appeal convictions. The Inter-American Court of Human Rights has interpreted this article in Herrera Ulloa v. Costa Rica. The interpretation given to this clause by the Court in the aforementioned case has led the Supreme Court of Justice of Argentina to resort to the old “Leistungsmethode” theory in order to determine the scope of the ordinary review imposed by international standards. Our contribution aims to analyse the concept of appeal, taking into account the German “Leistungsmethode”. Likewise, the contribution aims to identify the challengeable aspects in cases of condemnatory judgments, and to provide a brief review of regulatory schemes on double jeopardy. It is argued that the establishment of horizontal remedies constitutes a normative advance which reconciles the possibility to appeal a judgment of acquittal with the full operability of the guarantee.
