Application of interim measure in case of S. Mayrapetyan postponed

10/01/2019

On 4 January 2019, through a notice sent from the European Court of Human Rights, the Government of the Republic of Armenia was informed that, on 2 January 2019, the lawyers of Samvel Mayrapetyan had addressed the European Court of Human Rights and asked that the latter, pursuant to Rule 39 of the Rules of the Court, apply an interim measure, binding the authorities of the Republic of Armenia to return the passport of the Applicant and permit the Applicant to immediately depart from the country to receive medical treatment at the medical institution in the Federal Republic of Germany indicated by the Applicant.

The very next day, on 3 January, the European Court of Human Rights rendered a decision to postpone examination of the issue of undertaking an interim measure and posted the following questions to the Government of the Republic of Armenia:

  • Have the Armenian authorities taken the passport of the Applicant? If yes, what are the legal and factual grounds for that?
  • Taking into account the health condition of the Applicant, is it possible to organise the treatment of the latter in Armenia?

The Government of the Republic of Armenia has requested to present information regarding the posted questions by 11 January of this year. Currently, the Plenipotentiary Representative of the Government of the Republic of Armenia to the European Court of Human Rights is undertaking relevant measures to compile the specified information, establish the position of the Government of the Republic of Armenia and present it to the European Court of Human Rights within the prescribed time limit.
