Responsive Image

In the case of X v. Greece the Court has found a violation of Article 3 (lack of effective investigation) and a violation of the right to respect for private and family life).

The case concerned the applicant’s allegations that the Greek authorities had not carried out an effective investigation into her accusation that she was raped  and that the criminal proceedings had fallen short of the required standards. She claimed that the authorities had breached their duty to provide effective legal protection and to protect her as a victim of gender-based violence.

The Court found that the authorities had not given enough careful scrutiny to the case to have properly fulfilled their duties (“positive obligations”) under the Convention.
