Decision of the European Court for Human Rights of January 23, 2002 On the Acceptability of Complaint No. 48321/99 Lodged by Tatyana Slivenko and Others Against Latvia

The European Court for Human Rights, without considering the case by its merits, declared acceptable the suit of Tatyana Slivenko, a Russian national and former resident of Riga against an illegal deportation of her family from Latvia. In 1994 military serviceman Nikolai Slivenko was ordered to leave the country. Under the Russian-Latvian Agreement, families of military servicemen were to leave Latvia together with the troops. Nikolai Slivenko was denied a residence permit, although according to the Latvian laws, having lived there for more than 20 years, he had the right to stay. His wife who has been residing in Riga together with her parents since the age of 3, decided to achieve that, however, without success. The Latvian authorities managed to evict Tatyana Slivenko in 1999. Having lodged a complaint with the European Court For Human Rights, Tatyana Slivenko is hoping to return to Riga to take care of her elderly parents who are unable to move anywhere. The Slivenko family is also hoping to receive fr om Latvia a money compensation for the moral and material damage. The Higher Chamber of the Court made a decision to uphold the claims set forth in the complaint partially, although under quite serious articles of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights - 5 (illegal detention), 8 (violation of the right to family life) and 14 (discrimination). Both parties are invited to reach an amicable agreement. In the event that is not attained, the European court will make relevant claims on the Latvian government and examine the case by its merits.
