“At the last sitting on Nov. 19, at a meeting of a five-judge panel of the Grand Chamber, a decision was made to reject the further consideration of 17 cases,” reads a statement of the ECHR’s press service. Lutsenko’s case was mentioned as being among the abovementioned 17 cases.

The press service told Interfax-Ukraine that the Ukrainian government’s request to pass the case from the Grand Chamber to the ECHR was rejected, and the ruling dated July 3 has taken effect.

As reported, on July 3, 2012, the ECHR issued a ruling declaring that the arrest of Lutsenko was a violation of his human rights. Moreover, the court ordered the Ukrainian government to pay EUR 15,000 to the ex-minister as compensation for moral damages.
