Grand Chamber judgment concerning Slovenia
In the case of Lekić v. Slovenia the Court held that there has been no violation of the Convention.
The applicant was an associate, employee and then managing director of a company which, having no liquid assets, became insolvent. It was struck off the court register of companies in 2001, but that decision could not be served on the company, since it no longer had an office at its registered address; or elsewhere. In 2010 part of the applicant’s monthly salary payments were seized to pay off a debt incurred by the company.
Before the Court, the applicant complained about the company’s striking-off and the fact that he had been held liable for its debts.
