The case was successfully considered a complaint about the deprivation of the applicant's apartment, of which he was a bona fide purchaser. The case has violated the requirements of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
In 2009, the complainant was assisted in preparing a аpplication. Subsequently, the аpplication was communicated to the Russian Federation.
In his complaint, the claimant, who was a bona fide purchaser, complained that he had been deprived of an apartment, which had previously been sold by fraud, but that the claimant was not aware of anything when buying it. The complainant also claimed that his eviction constituted a violation of his right to respect for his private life.
On 11 April 2017, on a complaint filed by the applicant, the European Court unanimously decided that in the present case the authorities violated the requirements of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 to the Convention (the right to property protection) and that there is no need to consider a complaint of violation of Article 8 of the Convention ( respect for private and family life), obliging the respondent Government to pay the applicant 1,518 euros in respect of pecuniary damage and 1,500 euros in respect of non-pecuniary damage.
