All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. Human rights are protected in all democracies, including Latvia. Although this area of law is called human rights, human rights are also extended to legal entities, such as the right to protect one’s property, the right to a fair trial, the prohibition of discrimination, etc.
There are various mechanisms for the protection of human rights, namely, if the law violates the human rights of a person, then the person, provided certain conditions have been fulfilled, is entitled to file a claim with the Constitutional Court or with the Ombudsman of the Republic of Latvia. Complaints about human rights violations committed in Latvia may also be submitted to the European Court of Human Rights.
Our office has gained extensive experience both in the preparation of constitutional complaints before the Constitutional Court and in the preparation of complaints before the European Court of Human Rights, concerning the resolution of particularly complex human rights violations.
