On 15 December, 2016 the European Court of Human Rights adopted a positive judgment in favor of the applicants in the “CASE OF SHVETS AND OTHERS v. UKRAINE”. This case involved a violation of Article 6 and 13 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, an international instrument which was ratified by Ukraine in 1997 after acquiring membership in the Council of Europe.
The applicants in the case complained of violation of their right to a fair trial (a fair and public hearing within a reasonable time by an independent and impartial tribunal) and the right to an effective remedy (everyone whose rights and freedoms set forth in this Convention are violated shall have an effective remedy before a national authority notwithstanding that the violation has been committed by persons acting in an official capacity).
The Deputy Head of the European Party of Ukraine, the attorney-at-law Viktor Vasylyuk was one of the representatives in this case. Thanks to the professionalism and commitment of our lawyers, we managed to protect the violated rights of the applicants in the court of the international level. The present decision of the European Court of Human Rights stated violations by Ukraine and for the benefit of our client awarded compensation of 3,900 euros.
