Posted by Info on 20/03/2010

18.03.2010 – Maksimov v. Russia (no. 43233/02)

The applicant, Vladimir Maksimov, is a Russian national who was born in 1963 and lives in Krasnoyarsk (Russia). Mr Maksimov alleged that he had been ill-treated by the police in April 2000 – when the police broke into his house following a tip-off about an unregistered weapon – and in December 2001 – when arrested for refusing to be searched in the street. He complained in particular about the fact that, following the first incident, the domestic courts had refused to award him compensation for damage; and, following the second incident, the authorities had failed to carry out an effective investigation into his allegation. He relied on Articles 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment) and 13 (right to an effective remedy).

No violation of Article 13
No violation of Article 3 (alleged ill-treatment)
Violation of Article 3 (lack of effective investigation)
Just satisfaction: EUR 9,000 (non-pecuniary damage)
