Application no. 55488/14
COBRA TON D.O.O.
The European Court of Human Rights (Second Section), sitting on 20 October 2015 as a Committee composed of:
Robert Spano, President,
Jon Fridrik Kjølbro, judges,
and Abel Campos, Deputy Section Registrar,
Having regard to the above application lodged on 31 July 2014,
Having regard to the formal declarations accepting a friendly settlement of the case,
Having deliberated, decides as follows:
FACTS AND PROCEDURE
The applicant, Cobra Ton d.o.o., is a limited liability company incorporated under Croatian law. Its registered office is in Zagreb. It was represented before the Court by Ms L. Horvat, an advocate practising in Zagreb.
The Croatian Government ("the Government") were represented by their Agent, Ms Š. Stažnik.
The applicant company complained under Articles 6 § 1 and 13 of the Convention about the excessive length of civil proceedings and the ineffectiveness of the domestic length of proceedings remedies.
On 3 June and 18 September 2015 the Court received friendly settlement declarations signed by the parties under which the applicant company agreed to waive any further claims against Croatia in respect of the facts giving rise to this application against an undertaking by the Government to pay it 1,750 euros to cover any non-pecuniary damage as well as costs and expenses, which will be converted into Croatian kunas 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.
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 19 November 2015.
