In her complaint, the applicant complained that the record of her detention had been drawn up with considerable delay, that she had been detained for more than 48 hours without a court decision. The applicant also submitted that the judicial review of the lawfulness of her detention in an appeal procedure did not meet the criterion of urgency and that the subsequent trial was not fair because she could not directly interrogate witnesses.
On 13 June 2017, on a complaint lodged by the applicant, the Court unanimously held that in the present case the Government violated the requirements of Article 5 §§ 1 and 4 of the Convention (right to liberty and security of the person), paragraph 1 and subparagraph (d) of paragraph 3 of Article 6 Of the Convention (the right to a fair trial) and ordered the respondent State to pay the applicant EUR 10,000 in respect of non-pecuniary damage.
