About this resource:

Mr Piruzyan was held in detention without bail for one year and two months when he was released due to a lack of evidence. Mr P’s detention was not based on a court decision and guarantees under Armenian law had not been followed. For this reason, there was a clear violation of the right to liberty in Art 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Mr P was awarded €8,000 as compensation.
