AP-3881/21 – The Constitutional Court concluded that there has been a violation of the appellant’s right to liberty and security of person (in relation to the conclusion of ordinary courts that the reasons for ordering detention have been met) when the ordinary courts failed to state the particular circumstances which justify the conclusion that setting the appellant free would result in extraordinary circumstances due to an actual (not abstract) threat for the disturbance of public order in terms of Article 197(1)(g) of the Civil Procedure Code of the Republika Srpska.
All decisions adopted at today’s session will be delivered to the appellants within one month and published at the earliest possible date on the website of the Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
