Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate (Academic Journal)

Abstract

Comments on Correia de Matos v Portugal (56402/12) (ECtHR) on whether the Portuguese courts breached the applicant's rights under ECHR art.6 by refusing to allow him, a lawyer under suspension, to conduct his own defence in criminal proceedings. Highlights the extent of dissenting opinions as to whether a complete ban on self-representation was within the state's margin of appreciation and was inconsistent with international human rights law.
