Key facts of the case:

The Ministry of Justice rejected the petition of the applicant, a judge, for a 9 months paternal leave on the grounds that according to national legislation, a male employee of the public sector is not eligible for this kind of leave in case that the wife is not working unless she is facing health issues. The applicant claimed that the national legislation is not compatible with the Charter’s provisions, a fact which the judge who introduced the case accepted that needs further investigation.
