Uk Frozen Pension ECHR Decision Soon

If you have a UK Frozen Pension, then you are probably waiting eagerly for the European Court of Human Rights Decision (ECHR).. 

You can be sure that the thirteen British nationals who applied to the ECHR will be even more eager.  They are Ms Annette Carson, Mr Bernard Jackson, Mrs Venice Stewart, Mrs Ethel Kendall, Mr Kenneth Dean, Mr Robert Buchanan, Mr Terrance Doyle, Mr John Gould, Mr Geoff Dancer, Ms Penelope Hill, Mr Bernard Shrubsole, Mr Lothar Markiewicz and Mrs Rosemary Godfrey.

The way in which these UK pensioners in Canada, Australia and South Africa are challenging their UK frozen pensions has received wide publicity.  More details on their application (no. 42184/05) against the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland lodged with the Court under Article 34 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms on 24 November 2005 can be found on the UK Pension Parity website

The International Consortium of British Pensioners (ICPB), which is supporting the application, had decided earlier that they would appeal a negative decision on the Frozen UK Pensions case and move to the 17-judge ECHR Grand Chamber.

The response to that appeal will now be made public on September 2.  You can find more details on the judgment at the ECHR website
