In the case of Rezmiveș and Others v. Romania the Court has ruled the applicants’ conditions of detention contrary to the Convention.

  • Judgment concerning Hungary

    25/04/2017 

    In 2014, in the case of Magyarországi Evangéliumi Testvérközösség v. Hungary, the Court found that the authorities had failed in their duty of neutrality by systematically removing the church status of religious communities rather than opting for less drastic measures. At the time, the Court had held that the issue of just satisfaction was not ready for decision.

    In its judgment on just satisfaction delivered today the Court has awarded the applicant 3 million euros in respect of pecuniary damage.
