Decyzja Europejskiego Trybunału Praw Człowieka z dnia 26 marca 2019 r. 34664/12
Application no. 34664/12
The European Court of Human Rights (First Section), sitting on 26 March 2019 as a Committee composed of:
Krzysztof Wojtyczek, President,
Armen Harutyunyan, judges,
and Renata Degener, Deputy Section Registrar,
Having regard to the above application lodged on 10 May 2012,
Having deliberated, decides as follows:
FACTS AND PROCEDURE
The applicant, Mr Zoran Vladić, is a Croatian national, who was born in 1965 and lives in Dubrovnik. He was represented before the Court by Mr D. Arapović, a lawyer practising in Dubrovnik.
The Croatian Government ("the Government") were represented by their Agent, Ms Š. Stažnik.
The applicant complained under Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 to the Convention that he was charged customs debt by national authorities for a temporarily imported vehicle. The applicant's complaint was communicated to the Government, who submitted their observations on the admissibility and merits. The observations were forwarded to the applicant, who was invited to submit his own observations. No reply was received to the Registry's letter.
The applicant failed to respond to the last Registry's letter of 26 September 2018 (received by his representative on 9 October 2018), reminding him that the period allowed for submission of his observations in reply had expired on 17 November 2017 and that no extension of time had been requested. His attention was drawn to Article 37 § 1 (a) of the Convention.
The Court considers that, in these circumstances, the applicant may be regarded as no longer wishing to pursue his application, within the meaning of 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 its Protocols which require the continued examination of the case.
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.
Done in English and notified in writing on 18 April 2019.
