The Erased - Information and documents

Assistance to the erased persons in regulating their legal status and awareness raising of the public on the erasure and the status of remedying the violations.


Mass claims of erased persons filed before the European Court of Human Rights

Between 27th June 2013 and 3rd July 2013, a new set of collective applications including hundreds of erased persons was filed before the European Court of Human Rights, according to the Italian attorney Andrea Saccucci. Collective applications were filed in light of the persistent failure of the Slovenian authorities to adopt a national compensation scheme and to regulate comprehensively the situation of the erased.

Since the Government failed to comply with the pilot-judgment by missing the time-limit set therein, the only remedy for the victims of the erasure still lies with the European Court of Human Rights. Hundreds of erased persons filed their complaints on 27th June and on 3rd of July 2013, claiming the same violations that the Court has already found in Kurić and asking the Court to rule on their compensation claims irrespective of whether in the future Slovenia will set up an appropriate domestic remedy for that purpose.
