Application no. 2923/18
The European Court of Human Rights (First Section), sitting on 3 September 2019 as a Committee composed of:
Tim Eicke, President,
Raffaele Sabato, judges,
and Renata Degener, Deputy Section Registrar,
Having regard to the above application lodged on 12 March 2018,
Having regard to the formal declarations accepting a friendly settlement of the case,
Having deliberated, decides as follows:
FACTS AND PROCEDURE
1. The applicant, Mr Zbigniew Orłowski, is a Polish national, who was born in 1959 and is detained in Czerwionka.
2. The Polish Government ("the Government") were represented by their Agent, Mr J. Sobczak of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
3. The applicant complained under Article 8 of the Convention about the inadequate separation of toilet annexes in the prison cells in which he had been placed.
4. On 30 May and 4 April 2019 the Court received friendly settlement declarations signed by the parties under which the applicant agreed to waive any further claims against Poland in respect of the facts giving rise to this application against an undertaking by the Government to pay him 1,800 euros (one thousand eight hundred) to cover any pecuniary and non-pecuniary damage as well as costs and expenses, which will be converted into Polish zlotys at the rate applicable on the date of payment, and will be free of any taxes that may be applicable. It will be payable within three months from the date of notification of the decision taken by the Court. In the event of failure to pay this sum within the said three-month period, the Government undertook to pay simple interest on it, from the expiry of that period until settlement, at a rate equal to the marginal lending rate of the European Central Bank during the default period plus three percentage points. The payment will constitute the final resolution of the case.
5. The Court takes note of the friendly settlement reached between the parties. It is satisfied that the settlement is based on respect for human rights as defined in the Convention and its Protocols and finds no reasons to justify a continued examination of the application. In view of the above, it is appropriate to strike the case out of the list.
FOR THESE REASONS, THE COURT, UNANIMOUSLY,
Decides to strike the application out of its list of cases in accordance with Article 39 of the Convention.
Done in English and notified in writing on 26 September 2019.
