The ECHR judgment of October 8, 2019 in the case of Fedulov v. Russia (application No. 53068/08).
In 2008, the applicant was assisted in preparing the application. Subsequently, the application was communicated to the Russian Federation.
In the case, an application was successfully examined regarding the refusal of state authorities to fulfill their legal obligation to provide the applicant with free drugs necessary for cancer treatment and to provide compensation in connection with this violation, as well as the unfairness of the process of considering the applicant’s case due to the lack of legal assistance. The case has violated the requirements of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
In his application, the applicant complained about the refusals of the public authorities to fulfill their legal obligation to provide him with free drugs necessary for cancer treatment and to provide him with compensation in connection with this violation. He also argued that the trial of his case was not fair due to a lack of legal assistance.
On October 8, 2019, in an application lodged by the applicant, the Court unanimously ruled that in the present case the Government violated the requirements of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 to the Convention (the right to protection of property) and ordered the respondent Government to pay the applicant 1,400 euros as compensation for pecuniary damage and 6 500 euros as compensation for non-pecuniary damage.
