To declare prolonged detention of defendant in custody as well as non-providing of medical attention to him illegal.
The preliminary investigation bodies charged Mr. Ivanov, the Client of MCA "MAGNETAR", with the crimes under Part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (fraud). The application was sent to the European Court of Human Rights (Strasbourg).
During the defense in a criminal case, lawyers repeatedly petitioned to select another measure of restriction, not related to detention, due to defendant suffering a number of chronic disease. Suffering from these diseases enable the accused and suspect persons not to be held in a pre-trial detention center. Also the preliminary investigation bodies and the Federal Service for Execution of Punishment repeatedly ignored the lawyers’ demands for a medical commission and therefore the lawyers appealed to the ECHR.
The European Court considered a compliant and issued a decision to justify the compliant on the violation of the Client's rights. The Client was awarded compensation in the amount of EUR 2,600.
