EGMR: Refusal to adjourn a hearing listed on a Jewish holiday did not infringe lawyer’s freedom of religion

In today’s Chamber judgment in the case Sessa Francesco v. Italy (application no. 28790/08), which is not final, the European Court of Human Rights held, by a majority, that there had been no violation of Article 9 (right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion) of the European Convention on Human Rights. The case concerned the judicial authority’s refusal to adjourn a hearing listed on the date of a Jewish holiday. The Court considered in particular that, even supposing that there had been an interference with the applicant’s right under Article 9, such interference, prescribed by law, was justified on grounds of the protection of the rights and freedoms of others – and in particular the public’s right to the proper administration of justice – and the principle that cases be heard within a reasonable time.
