Gërdeci/ The Strasbourg Court gives the right to the families of the victims: The state compensates them
The European Court of Human Rights has issued a decision on the lawsuit of Gërdec's family members. The Strasbourg Court says that there was a violation of the Human Rights Convention in the case of the "Gërdec" massacre.
While this case is in the Special Court at the request of SPAK, Strasbourg says that over the years there have been violations. According to Strasbourg's decision, the families of the victims should have been part of the process from the beginning.
"The Court finds that there was a violation of the procedural aspect of Article 2 of the Convention".
The European Court of Human Rights forces the state to pay Zamira and Feruzan Durda €12,000 for the damages caused by the Gërdec massacre, where Zamira Durda lost her minor son. The family members injured by Gërdeci sent the case to Strasbourg. In the decision, the other people injured by Gërdeci who will benefit from 10,000 euros have also been made public. The decision states that the state must compensate the applicants within three months from the date on which the decision becomes final.
"The respondent state must pay the applicants, within three months from the date on which the decision becomes final in accordance with Article 44 § 2 of the Convention, the following sums: jointly Zamira Durdajt and Feruzan Durdajt, 12,000 euros (twelve thousand euros), plus any tax that can be paid for non-pecuniary damage; to the remaining applicants, 10,000 (ten thousand euros) each, plus any tax that may be payable for non-pecuniary damage; jointly for all applicants, 8,000 (eight thousand euros) euros, plus any tax that may be charged to them, in respect of costs and expenses; from the expiration of the above-mentioned three months until repayment, simple interest will be paid on the above amounts at a rate equal to the marginal lending rate of the European Central Bank during the period of non-payment plus three percentage points", states the decision of Strasbourg.
