Chamber judgment concerning Albania
In the case of Tërshana v. Albania the Court has found a violation of the right to life in connection with the procedural aspect of the case, which concerned an acid attack on the applicant in a Tirana street in 2009.
The Court ruled that the State could not be held responsible for the attack because it had not been aware of any threat to the applicant or of the violent conduct of her former husband, whom she suspected of having carried out the attack.
However, the Court noted that the investigation into the attack, which had been a typical act of gender-based violence and should therefore have prompted the authorities to react with special diligence, had failed to identify the substance thrown at the applicant; nor had she been kept informed of the progress of the investigation, despite her repeated enquiries.

The Court found that the obligation for the applicant to appear in person in connection with the application for a retrial did not amount to a disproportionate burden....
