Subject: MEDEL magistrates, after having recalled the Declaration of the European Parliament 7.6.2007 about the revival of the constituent process, reassert not only that the Charter of Nice has already had a vast application in the European judiciary system, but also that it has been mentioned in the agreement of cooperation 10-11.05.2007 between the EU and the Council of Europe, concerning the protection of human rights; they then state the need of incorporating the Charter in the Text of the future Treaty or at least of approving a law which gives it a mandatory nature so as to guarantee a rational and effective defence of fundamental rights in Europe. They also underline the necessity that the EU subscribe the European Convention of 1950.
