Bosnia’s Constitutional Court Rules Compulsory Muzzles, Movement Restrictions a Human Rights Violation


The Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina has declared unconstitutional some of the restrictive measures introduced in the country to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection, it was confirmed on Tuesday from the seat of that court in Sarajevo.

At a session during the day, the Constitutional Court ruled that the measure restricting movement at night in force in the Federation of BiH and the obligation to wear protective masks both indoors and outdoors in force in both entities constitute “interference with fundamental human rights.” and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms “.

The assessment of the constitutional judges is that the introduced measures mean a violation of the right to private life and freedom of movement, and it is disputable that the measures were introduced by the crisis headquarters of the ministries of health without the participation of the highest legislative and executive bodies.

Measures to restrict movement at night and the obligation to wear protective masks have been in force in BiH since the escalation of a new wave of pandemics that followed in early autumn, and a group of Sarajevo lawyers appealed to the Constitutional Court.

The BiH Constitutional Court issued a similar decision earlier this year when it declared unconstitutional a provision banning the movement of persons over 65 and under 18 during the first wave of the pandemic.

    It appears the US Supremo’s could learn from countries that still respect their founding constitutions.

    In the US, the Supreme Court members do not look to the constitution for their decisions. Instead they look for precedents set by previous Supreme Court decisions. Constitutional lawyers rarely even look at the constitution when in law school,,, again they study precedents. The whole thing is a sham. This is why they constantly make decisions in direct contradiction of the supreme law. Sad but true…

    Example: the constitution REQUIRES the Supreme Court to hear cases involving disputes between the states. This was the entire reason for the court. A previous court decision and now precedent states they can choose to accept or decline cases which was why they declined the Texas suit concerning the election. Their declining was unconstitutional and made the court irrelevant. Without law the country will cease to exist.

    Clearly that’s just another small SHOW! These types of decisions are not effective in real time.

    There are major health problems wearing masks and that includes Pulmonary Fibrosis.

    if even a small portion of mask fibers is detachable by inspiratory airflow, or if there is debris in mask manufacture or packaging or handling, then there is the possibility of not only entry of foreign material to the airways, but also entry to deep lung tissue, and potential pathological consequences of foreign bodies in the lungs.

    Therefore, there is even more need that the fibers, debris and other particulate attached to cloth masks would stay entirely intact; every fiber, and every part of every fiber, and throughout every breath, at all times, even down to the size of nanometers.

    Pulmonary fibrosis is among the worst diseases that can be suffered or witnessed. It kills exceedingly slowly, by ever-thickening matrix formation, a kind of scar tissue, obstructing the alveoli and reducing their air exchange. The illness worsens slowly over time, and suffocates the victim very gradually.
