Grand Chamber judgment concerning Romania
In the case of Nicolae Virgiliu Tănase v. Romania, the Court has found no violation of the Convention. The applicant, a judge who was seriously injured in a road-traffic accident in 2004, complained, in particular, about the length and alleged ineffectiveness of the criminal investigation into the accident.
The Grand Chamber took the opportunity to clarify which Articles of the European Convention on Human Rights should be applied in the case of an accident causing severe injury. Thus, although the applicant had relied essentially on Article 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment), the Court considered it appropriate to examine the case also under Articles 2 (right to life) and 8 (right to respect for private and family life).
