Serezha Tovmasovich TOVMASYAN
The European Court of Human Rights (Fifth Section), sitting on 12 September 2019 as a Committee composed of:
André Potocki, President,
Yonko Grozev, judges,
and Liv Tigerstedt, Acting Deputy Section Registrar,
Having regard to the above application lodged on 2 September 2013,
Having deliberated, decides as follows:
FACTS AND PROCEDURE
The applicant, Mr Serezha Tovmasovich Tovmasyan, is an Armenian national, born in 1954, who lives in Avdiyivka (Ukraine).
The applicant's complaints under Article 6 § 1 of the Convention concerning the excessive length of criminal proceedings and the lack of any effective remedy in domestic law were communicated to the Ukrainian Government ("the Government"), who submitted 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.
By letter dated 21 May 2019, sent by registered post, the applicant was notified that the period allowed for submission of his observations had expired on 17 October 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. This letter was delivered on 1 June 2019. However, no response has been received.
In the light of the foregoing, the Court concludes that the applicant does not wish to pursue the 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 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 3 October 2019.
