ECHR rules partially in favour of applicants in high-profile custody case

By: P.T., STA

The European Court of Human Rights found that Slovenia has violated an article of the European Convention on Human Rights as it partially endorsed the views of two grandparents in an application concerning foster care for their grandchildren, a case that has been making headlines in Slovenia since 2016.

The court found that Slovenia violated the right to fair trial enshrined in Article 6 of the Convention, but it held that it did not violate Article 8 of the Convention concerning the contact proceedings.
