The ECHR judgment of 08 October 2019 in the case of Talatov v. Russia (application No. 11008/04).
In 2004, the applicant was assisted in preparing the application. Subsequently, the application was communicated to the Russian Federation.
The case has successfully examined an application about unjustified restriction of public access to the courtroom, which made the criminal proceedings in the applicant’s case unfair. The case has violated article 6, paragraph 1, of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (right to a fair trial).
In his application, the applicant complained that the unjustified restriction of public access to the courtroom had made the criminal proceedings in his case unfair.
On October 8, 2019, in an application lodged by the applicant, the Court unanimously ruled that in the present case the Russian authorities had violated the requirement of Article 6 § 1 of the Convention (right to a fair trial). Since the applicant did not submit a claim for just satisfaction, he was not awarded any amount under this head.
