ARTICLE 6
RIGHT TO A FAIR TRIAL
You have the right to a fair and public hearing within a
reasonable period of time. This applies to both criminal
charges against you, or in sorting out cases concerning your
civil rights and obligations. Hearings must be by an
independent and impartial tribunal established by law. It is
possible to exclude the public from the hearing (though not
the judgement) if that is necessary to protect things like
national security or public order.
If it is a criminal charge you are presumed innocent until
proved guilty according to law and have certain guaranteed
rights to defend yourself.
