Application no. 62876/12
The European Court of Human Rights (Second Section), sitting on 15 April 2014 as a Committee composed of:
Nebojša Vučinić, President,
Robert Spano, judges,
and Abel Campos, Deputy Section Registrar,
Having regard to the above application lodged on 2 August 2012,
Having regard to the formal declarations accepting a friendly settlement of the case,
Having deliberated, decides as follows:
FACTS AND PROCEDURE
The applicant, Mr İzzettin Hedekoğlu, is a Turkish national, who was born in 1997 and lives in Batman. He was represented before the Court by Mr A. Kaya, a lawyer practising in Istanbul.
The Turkish Government ("the Government") were represented by their Agent.
The applicant complained under Article 5 §§ 3, 4 and 5 of the Convention about the length of his detention on remand, the fairness of the review procedure of his detention and the right to have compensation with regard to his allegedly unlawful detention.
On 21 May 2013 and 21 November 2013 the Court received friendly settlement declarations signed by the parties under which the applicant agreed to waive any further claims against Turkey in respect of the facts giving rise to this application against an undertaking by the Government to pay him EUR 1,500 (one thousand and five hundred euros) to cover any and all non-pecuniary damage and EUR 500 (five hundred euros) to cover any and all costs and expenses. These sums will be converted into Turkish liras at the rate applicable on the date of payment, and will be free of any taxes that may be applicable. They 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.
