Gov’t ordered to pay record damages by ECHR

The government paid in the first six months of the year damage of over RON 42.39 M (EUR 10.2 M), as ordered by the European Court of Human Rights, according to Mediafax. The amount is much higher than what the state had to pay last year and than the total amounts paid between 1998 and 2007. The only time Romania had to pay higher damage was in 2008, when it was ordered to pay RON 47.18 M in damage, but that amount was for an entire year, not only six months, the agency said.

Under legal provisions, damages decided by the ECHR have to be paid within three months since the court order. The damages are ordered by ECHR for Romanian authorities’ violation of citizens’ legal rights, mostly the right to property.

Last year, Romania was sentenced to pay a total of RON 41.23 M by the ECHR.
