Human rights lawyers, or any lawyers for that matter, do not make that determination. Only a court of competent jurisdiction can make that determination. A lawyer might CLAIM that the court has jurisdiction, but the very first question any court will have to ask and answer is "does this court have proper jurisdiction." If not, the case is dismissed.
Well yes. OK, I suppose I should have said, "If the human rights lawyer believes that the court has jurisdiction (and the court accepts the case)....etc etc" - I did not expect such a fine dissection of my text. I must admit that at least your replies to threads are unlikely to contain expletives, which is nice.
