Kuric And Others v Slovenia: ECHR 26 Jun 2012

Grand Chamber – Yugoslav citizens resident in Slovenia at the time of independence, failed to acquire Slovenian citizenship and their names were ‘erased’ from the register of permanent residents, thus making them stateless. It was not in dispute that the ‘erasure’ and its repercussions amounted to an interference with the ‘private or family life’ of the applicants under article 8 of the Convention.
Held: The domestic legal system had failed to regulate clearly the consequences of the ‘erasure’, and that it involved an interference which was not ‘in accordance with the law’ as required by article 8(2)
