Papamichalopoulos and Others v Greece: ECHR 24 Jun 1993

Expropriation notices, which were eventually withdrawn, constituted neither deprivation of property nor control of use, but ‘The fact that the permits fell within the ambit of neither of the second sentence of the first paragraph nor of the second paragraph does not mean that the interference with the [right guaranteed by Article 1P1] violated the rule contained in the first sentence of the first paragraph.’ and ‘For the purposes of the latter provision, the court must determine whether a fair balance was struck between the demands of the general interests of the community and the requirements of the protection of the individual’s fundamental rights. The search for the balance is inherent in the whole of the Convention and is also reflected in the structure of Article 1.’
