Grand Chamber judgment concerning Türkiye
In the case of Kavala v. Türkiye the Court held that there had been a violation of the Convention.
The case concerned a question referred to the ECHR by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, which is responsible for supervising the enforcement of the ECHR’s judgments, as to whether the Republic of Türkiye has failed to fulfil its obligation to comply with the Chamber judgment delivered by the Court in the case of Kavala v. Turkey in 2019.
Due to the interruption of the international postal services to and from the Russian Federation and where the only means of delivery of the Court’s decisions and judgments to the applicants is by post, the Court has exceptionally decided to notify the applicants about decisions and judgments adopted by its Chamber and Committee judicial formations after 1 March 2022 in respect of applications against the Russian Federation only via its HUDOC database.
