Chapter Summary

Starting from the analysis of the European Court judgment in El-Masri, with an eye to legal reasoning related to the right to the truth, this chapter addresses the innovative reverse path followed by this right, from the well-established case law of Inter-American Court of Human Rights in San José, to the Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. In July 2009, assisted by the Open Society Justice Initiative, El-Masri lodged a complaint against the Republic of Macedonia with the European Court of Human Rights, seeking compensation for the torture and other cruel. The European Court in El-Masri undoubtedly paid a high tribute to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The innovative and reverse path followed by the right to the truth could mark a new era of positive dialogue and mutual influence between courts, "competing" with each other to afford human rights the highest standards of protection.
