In her complaint, the applicant, who lives in the village of Aksakovo of the Orenburg Region, complained about the death of her brother in a room occupied by the internal affairs department of the municipality of Buguruslan and the Buguruslan district, and claimed that he had been illegally detained and subjected to ill-treatment by police officers.
On 14 February 2017, on the complaint filed by the applicant, the European Court unanimously ruled that in the present case the authorities violated the requirements of articles 2 (right to life) and 3 of the Convention (prohibition of torture) in the substantive part and the requirements of articles 2 and 3 of the Convention in procedural part, and ordered the respondent State to pay the applicant EUR 50,600 in respect of non-pecuniary damage. As the complaint of a violation of Article 5 of the Convention (the right to liberty and security of person) was closely related to the claims for violation of Articles 2 and 3 of the Convention, the Court decided that it was not necessary to consider it separately.
