Judgment concerning Italy

Judges' hammer

In the case of Giuliano Germano v. Italy the Court held that there had been a violation of the right to respect for private and family life.

The case concerned a police caution (ammonimento) issued against the applicant at his wife’s request after she had left him and when she complained that he was harassing and intimidating her.

The Court found that the national authorities had failed to give relevant and sufficient reasons justifying the measure, that any safeguards had been limited, and that the applicant had had inadequate legal protection against abuse.
