17.7.2014, humanrightseurope.org – Romania: Court rules on Roma teenager’s psychiatric hospital death

Judges say Romania breached the human rights of a Roma teenager who died whilst under a psychiatric hospital’s care.

Following today’s judgement in the case of Centre For Legal Resources (CLR) On Behalf Valentin Câmpeanu v. Romania (application no. 47848/08), the European Court of Human Rights held that Romania was to pay 10,000 euros (EUR) to the CLR and EUR 25,000 to the organisation Interights, which acted as advisor to counsel for the CLR before the Court.
