The purpose of this article will be to ascertain to what extent Pierre Drai' s prediction has been realized. We examine cases where the ref ere procedure has been used in private human rights disputes where one party seeks to limit the right of freedom of the press or expression by claiming such right has been used illegally or in an abusive way. We will not deal with human rights violations by member states.
