Communicated case against Moldova

Friday, September 21, 2018

On September 21, the ECtHR communicated an asylum-related case against Moldova. The case concerns the restriction of freedom of movement of recognised refugees, due to the non-issuance of travel documents by the Moldovan authorities. The applicants had brought an action before the Supreme Court of Justice, which ruled in their favour in 2009. The Supreme Court’s judgment, however, remains unimplemented. The applicants allege violation of Articles 6 (right to a fair trial) and 8 (right of private and family life) of the Convention and Article 2 § 2 of Protocol No. 4 (freedom of movement).
