We would like to hear from you.
The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg have invited campaigner Robbie the Pict to complete an application for a hearing to debate the issue of the refusal of the Scottish courts to hear his pre-trial arguments on devolution issues.
Robbie the Pict had argued that the Scottish courts were instead proposing that he accept a decision against him, and thereafter seek redress, which he described as "judicial violation."
The court will now discuss the issue of Robbie the Pict "'not receiving a reasoned judgment from Sheriff Kelly, that being upheld by two Supreme Court Judges, and then Sheriff MacFadyen pressing on with a trial".
"I claim no more than there is now a process ongoing in the European Court which complains of Human Rights abuse by two Sheriffs and two Supreme Court Judges during pre-trial procedure in Scotland, and it is only noteworthy that this action has NOT been dismissed out of hand and as the Crown claimed it would be," Robbie said.
"I concede that it may not pass the second stage but since no-one appears to have tried before it is not for anyone to declare failure in advance."
The notification was received yesterday. The case in question is scheduled to be heard today.
Robbie's arguments must be lodged by 17th January 2012
