The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) approved the request submitted by Asociatia 21 Decembrie, a Romanian NGO, to immediately deal with cases related to the Romanian Revolution and the miners' crusade to Bucharest in the early nineties. The decision is an aknowledgement of the fact that 18 years is not a reasonable term to resolve some cases which pertain to a revolution, Asociatia 21 decembrie director Teodor Maries declared for HotNews.ro. 

The request of the association is, according to its director, against Romania's judicial system and complains against its breach of the victims' rights to have a fair and equal trial in a reasonable time frame. He added that 18 years have passed and the files are still lagging behind.

Maries said that his decision was imposed by the lack of action taken by Romanian courts in these cases. A revolutionary's delegation, composed of 40 people, protested on April 10 in front of the HR Court headquarters in Strasbourg and handed over the cases to ECHR representatives.
