The European Court of Human Rights has found the violation of Article 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment) of the European Convention on Human Rights into Nodar Gogaladze’s case.
The decision has been published on the web page of ECHR today.
In addition, the European Court of Human Rights imposed compensation in the amount of € 6,000 to the applicant for non-pecuniary damage, which should be paid in three months after the final decision by the European Court of Human Rights. The Strasbourg Court did not satisfy other claims about compensation requested by the applicant (Gogaladze’s defense side demanded 50,000 euros as compensation).
Gogaladze was arrested by Borjomi police on February 2008. He claimed that he had been physically and verbally assaulted at the police station.
