Moldova again condemned by the ECtHR


The Republic of Moldova was again condemned to the ECtHR for inhumane detention conditions. Moldova will have to pay 6,300 euros for two former detainees, TV Moldova 1 reports.
The two complained that they were detained in inadequate prison conditions in the Transnistrian region, and that the civil proceedings had an excessively long duration.

The decision was published on the High Court website. Magistrates unanimously decided that in both cases, Article 3 of the Convention, which prohibits torture and inhuman or degrading treatment, has been violated.

Since the accession of the Republic of Moldova to the European Convention on Human Rights and until 2017, the ECHR, in 317 pronounced judgments, has found at least one violation of the Convention by our country. For this, Moldova paid victims more than 14.3 million euros.
