The aim of the presentation is to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the European Court of Human Rights case law regarding searches in criminal cases. The author will analyze the origins and evolution of the Court’s approach as well as assess how active the Court is in establishing effective protection against the abuse of powers of authorities conducting searches. The influence of new technologies on practice of searches and their impact on rights of the individual will also be analyzed. The aim of the presentation is to identify what are the elements of the common European standard regarding searches and to evaluate whether and to what extent this standard can offer effective protection of human rights.
