Hudoc Violation of Art. 6-1; Non-pecuniary damage – finding of violation sufficient; Costs and expenses award – Convention proceedings
An alleged Article 6 breach has to be considered in the overall context of the case, and is not to be addressed in relation to any one, discrete aspect of it. The court emphasised the significance of the right to an adversarial hearing guaranteed by Article 6 specifically in the context of an expert’s report which was ‘likely to have a preponderant influence on the assessment of the facts by [the] court.’
