The Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina has held today its 119th plenary session by electronic means to consider the requests for review of constitutionality/compatibility.
Of decisions it adopted today the Constitutional Court has singled out the following:
In case no. U 2/20, the Constitutional Court, in deciding a request filed by 11 Members of the House of Representatives of the Parliamentary Assembly of Bosnia and Herzegovina for review of constitutionality of Article 2 of the Law on Amendments to the Animal Welfare Law (Official Gazette of Bosnia and Herzegovina, 9/18), established that Article 2 of the Law on Amendments to the Animal Welfare Law (Official Gazette of Bosnia and Herzegovina, 9/18) is compatible with Article I(2) of the Constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Constitutional Court concluded that the mentioned provision of the contested Law, whereby the legal effect, i.e. the entry into force of the prohibition on breeding the animals for the fur production purposes was postponed again, “is adequately accessible for all those to whom it applies, that it is foreseeable, i.e. it is formulated with sufficient precision so that the persons can know actually and specifically their rights and obligations to a degree that is reasonable in the given circumstances to regulate their conduct accordingly”.
All decisions adopted at today’s session will be delivered to the appellants within one month and published as soon as possible on the website of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
