European court orders Azerbaijan to pay €35,000 in compensation to displaced Armenian family  

17:16 • 12.12.17



The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ordered the Azerbaijani government to pay 35,000 Euros to Armenia in compensation to a family displaced during the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) war.


The applicant, Minas Saegsyan, lodged the appeal in 2006, requesting restitution for his lost house in Nagorno-Karabakh's Gulistan village (Shahumyan region). Sargsyan obtained Armenian citizenship in 2002 and died on 13 November 2009. His proceeding was subsequently pursued by his spouse.


The applicant claimed a total amount of 374,814 Euros as compensation in respect of pecuniary damage suffered as a result of his forced displacement from Gulistan in June 1992 and his inability to return to his property.


After Sargsyan's demise, his widow and children were declared legal successors.


The ECHR Grand Chamber held that there had been a continuing violation of Article 1 of Protocol No 1 of the European Convention on Human Rights (Protection of Property). It also found continuing violations of Articles 8 (Right to Respect for Private Life) and Article 13 (Prohibition of Discrimination) and held that no separate issue arose under Article 14 of the Convention.


Under the judgement, posted on the ECHR website, the 35,000 Euros will be paid to the applicant's children, Vladimir Sargsyan and Tsovinar Sargsyan, for non-pecuniary, and pecuniary-damage, as well as judicial costs. The Chamber has set a time limit of three months for the Respondent State to exercise the judgement.
