The case was successfully considered a complaint against the refusal of state bodies to pay compensation for unlawful criminal prosecution. The case has violated the requirements of paragraph 2 of Article 6 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
In 2004, complainants were assisted in preparing a аpplication. Subsequently, the аpplication was communicated to the Russian Federation.
In their complaint, the applicants (three people) living in the city of Taganrog complained about the refusal of the domestic authorities to pay them compensation for the criminal prosecution, which they considered illegal, which led to a violation in their case of the presumption of innocence and their right to receive compensation in case of a judicial error.
On January 10, 2017, on the complaint filed by the applicants, the European Court unanimously ruled that in this case the authorities violated the requirements of Article 6 § 2 of the Convention (the right to a fair trial) by not violating Article 3 of the Convention N 7 compensation in the event of a judicial error), and ordered the respondent State to pay each applicant 5,000 euros in respect of non-pecuniary damage.
ECHR ruling dated January 10, 2017 in the case of Trufanov and Others v. Russia (аpplication No. 18130/04).
