Romania to pay compensation to Timisoara 1989 victims

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruled on Tuesday that Romania pay compensation of EUR 349,500 to a total of 72 Romanian citizens, victims of the communist repression of the demonstrations of December 1989, in Timisora, according to a release posted on the ECHR website, quoted by jurnalul.ro. The applicants – Romanian nationals born between 1919 and 1988 – were all recognised by the official investigation opened after the fall of the communist regime as victims or heirs of victims of the repression. Through its judgement passed on Tuesday, ECHR awarded EUR 5,000 in non-pecuniary damages to each of the 65 applicants in respect of which a violation of Article 2 was found and EUR 3,500 non-pecuniary damage to each of the seven applicants in respect of which a violation of Article 3 of the Convention was found.
