GOLAW attorneys have successfully secured the Client’s application consideration with the European Court of Human Rights

The European Court of Human Rights (hereinafter referred to as  ECHR, Court) accepted the Client’s application prepared by the GOLAW attorneys. The case concerns the illicit bringing an official to the disciplinary responsibility. The national authorities and courts refused to hear the Client’s case, allegedly due to missing the procedural deadlines.

In an application to the ECHR, GOLAW attorneys drew the Court’s attention to the apparent violation of the Client’s right to a fair trial, access to justice, and an effective way of court defense in national authorities. The Client’s application will be considered by the ECHR shortly. This means that the application meets the admissibility criteria – a kind of filter through which most of the applications submitted to the Court do not pass.

Under martial law, when the russian federation inflicts devastating damage on Ukrainian citizens and businesses, positive news from the European Court of Human Rights is very important. Thus, along with national mechanisms of war damages recovery, it is also possible to apply to the ECHR with an individual application. Such application must contain a concise and legible statement of the facts, the violations of the Convention, and the relevant arguments of the complainant.

The project was run by a team of GOLAW attorneys – Head of Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice Kateryna Manoylenko, Counsel at Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice – Kateryna Tsvetkova, as well as Attorney at law at Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice – Anastasiia Nikolenko.

GOLAW attorneys have a successful track record of applying to the European Court of Human Rights and are always ready to provide relevant clarifications and advice on the application procedure in such cases, as well as prepare an application to the Court for compensation of damages caused by the war.
