Judgment concerning France

Main hall of the Human Rights building

In the case of Tamazount and Others v. France, the Court found several violations of the Convention and no violation of the right to access to a court.

The case concerned five French nationals who are the descendants of “Harkis” (auxiliary forces of Algerian origin who fought alongside the French army during the Algerian War of Independence).

The Court found that the day-to-day living conditions of the residents of the Bias camp had not been compatible with respect for human dignity and had moreover involved infringements of their individual freedoms and that the sums awarded by the domestic courts in the present case had not afforded appropriate and sufficient redress for the violations found.
