ECHR judgement on the case of the DIY pub

May 17

Ten years ago, after the explosion of DIY pub, a criminal case was initiated predicated on the cause of property damage, not taking into account that the crime was committed on the basis of hatred. The First Instance Court sentenced the criminals to two years imprisonment; however, the sentence was not conditionally executed. Later, the Court of Cassation upheld the judgment by the First Instance Court.

Later on, an application was submitted to the European Court of Human Rights, which will announce its verdict on May 17, 2022.
