Judgment concerning Serbia

Ceiling of the main hall of the Human Rights building

In the case of Boškoćević v. Serbia the Court held that there had been a violation of the right of individual application.

The case concerned the non-enforcement of a judgment in the applicant’s favour with regard to outstanding wages and, more essentially, his complaint that his managing director had sent him a letter warning him that he had breached his duties and risked dismissal shortly after he had lodged his application with the Court.

The ECHR found that the Serbian Government was responsible for the acts of the applicant’s employer and its managing director. It concluded that the warning letter had constituted “pressure” and “intimidation” and that it had interfered with the right of individual petition underpinning the Convention system.
