Resolution of the ECHR of October 16, 2018 in the case of Shatokhin (Shatokhin) v. Russian Federation (appeal for revision) (application No. 50236/06).
The case filed and successfully reviewed an appeal for review in connection with the death of the applicant of the decision of the European Court of Human Rights, which against the applicant found a violation of Article 3 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The appeal is satisfied, the amount awarded to the applicant is decided to pay to the applicant's heir.
In 2006, the applicant, who died in 2012, was assisted in preparing a application. Subsequently, the application was communicated to the Russian Federation.
In the Shatokhin v. Russia case decision of 27 February 2018, complaint no. 50236/06, the European Court found that there was a violation of Article 3 of the Convention (prohibition of torture) because of the solitary confinement camera, despite the recommendation of his psychiatrist about not applying such a measure, and ordered the respondent state to pay the applicant 15,000 euros. However, on 30 March 2018 a representative of the applicant informed the European Court that the applicant died on 21 October 2012, therefore he requested a review of this Order within the meaning of Rule 80 of the Rules of Court (request for review of the judgment).
On 16 October 2018, at the request of the representative of the applicant, the European Court unanimously decided that the amount of 15,000 euros awarded earlier to the applicant should be paid to his mother as heiress.
