Judgment concerning Albania

Human Rights Building
04/04/23

In the case of Gashi and Gina v. Albania the Court held that there had been a violation of the right to respect for private and family life in respect of the second applicant.

The case concerned a criminal investigation into the applicants on suspicion of irregularities related to their declaration of assets and financial interests over the years, and their suspension from their positions as prosecutors as required by the relevant legislation.

The Court found that the suspension of the second applicant had been devoid of any legal basis once the criminal investigation against him had ended, and had therefore not been “in accordance with the law”.

The Court dismissed as inadmissible the first applicant’s similar complaint about her suspension and the alleged leaking of personal data to the media.
