Application no. 2775/14
The European Court of Human Rights (Fourth Section), sitting on 5 July 2018 as a Committee composed of:
Vincent A. De Gaetano, President,
Marko Bošnjak, judges,
and Liv Tigerstedt, Acting Deputy Section Registrar,
Having regard to the above application lodged on 7 January 2014,
Having deliberated, decides as follows:
FACTS AND PROCEDURE
The applicant, Mr Artur Toporkov, was born in 1983.
The applicant's complaints under Article 3 of the Convention concerning the inadequate conditions of detention were communicated to the Lithuanian Government ("the Government").
At the time of lodging his application before the Court (7 January 2014), the applicant was detained in Alytus Correctional Facility. By letter dated 20 February 2018, sent by registered post to Alytus Correctional Facility, the applicant was informed that notice of part of his application had been given to the Government and that the issues raised therein were the subject of well-established case-law of the Court. A friendly settlement declaration was proposed. No response to that letter was received by the Registry.
On 12 June 2018 the Government informed the Registry that the applicant had died on 25 March 2017. According to the official documents submitted by the Government, he had not been married and had had no children or other registered heirs.
In the light of the foregoing, the Court concludes that the applicant does not have heirs who may be regarded as wishing to pursue the application within the meaning of Article 37 § 1 (a) of the Convention.
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 26 July 2018.
Vincent A. De Gaetano
Acting Deputy Registrar
