Romania has 18 months to solve nationalised property issue

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) yesterday ruled its first pilot decision against Romania in the trial Maria Atanasiu and others vs. Romania, which actually suspends similar cases pending in the ECHR and obliges the Romanian state to take measures within the next 18 months towards solving the property return issue. Otherwise, Romania runs the risk to even be excluded from the Council of Europe. The ECHR ruling is suspending for 18 months the examination of similar cases and sentenced the Romanian state to pay claimants Maria Atanasiu and Ileana Iuliana Poenaru damage compensations of 65,000 euros, and to claimant Ileana Florica Solon, compensations equal to 115,000 euros and 3,151 euros. Hotnews.ro quoted lawyer Gheorghe Piperea as saying the pilot case means “all the couple of hundreds of cases pending in the ECHR are handed similar verdicts and the Romanian state is grossly culpable over the compensations issue.”
