On May 28, 2019, in an application lodged by the applicant, the Court unanimously ruled that in the present case the Government violated the requirement of Article 6 of the Convention (the right to a fair trial) and that a finding of a violation would constitute sufficient just satisfaction for any non-pecuniary damage suffered by the applicant.
