Application no. 25051/11
PUBLISHER EZHAYEV A. K. LTD
The European Court of Human Rights (Third Section), sitting on 21 March 2019 as a Committee composed of:
Alena Poláčková, President,
Jolien Schukking, judges,
and Liv Tigerstedt, Acting Deputy Section Registrar,
Having regard to the above application lodged on 21 March 2011,
Having deliberated, decides as follows:
FACTS AND PROCEDURE
The applicant, Publisher Ezhayev A. K. Ltd (OOO Издатель Ежаев A. K.), is a publisher operating in Moscow.
The applicant's complaints under Articles 9, 10 and 13 of the Convention concerning the ban on distributing two Muslim books published by it were communicated to the Russian Government.
By letters dated 26 June and 18 October 2018, sent by registered post, the applicant was notified that the period allowed for submission of its observations on the admissibility and merits of the application had expired on 13 April 2018 and that no extension of time had been requested. The applicant's attention was drawn to Article 37 § 1 (a) of the Convention, which provides that the Court may strike an application out of its list of cases where the circumstances lead to the conclusion that the applicant does not intend to pursue the application. The applicant received the Registry's letter of 18 October 2018 on 9 November 2018. However, no response has been received.
In the light of the foregoing, the Court concludes that the applicant may be regarded as no longer wishing to pursue the application (Article 37 § 1 (a) of the Convention). Furthermore, in accordance with Article 37 § 1 in fine, the Court finds no special circumstances regarding respect for human rights as defined in the Convention and the Protocols thereto which require the continued examination of the application.
Accordingly, the case should be struck out of the list.
FOR THESE REASONS, THE COURT, UNANIMOUSLY,
Decides to strike the application out of its list of cases.
Done in English and notified in writing on 11 April 2019.
