In the following cases the Court has reached the same findings as in similar cases raising the same issues under the Convention:
Violation of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1
In these two cases the applicants all owned land that was occupied by the authorities with a view to expropriation; construction work was started on it. In the absence of an expropriation order or any compensation, the applicants brought proceedings claiming damages for unlawful occupation of their land.
The applicants complained about the occupation of their land, relying on Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 (protection of property) and Article 6 § 1 (right to a fair hearing).
The Court held unanimously in both cases that there had been a violation of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 and considered that it was not necessary to examine the complaint under Article 6 § 1.
In Emanuele Calandra and Others, the Court considered that the question of the application of Article 41 (just satisfaction) was not ready for decision. The Court made no award to Mr Ippoliti as had not submitted a figure for his claim for just satisfaction within the required period. (The judgments are available only in French.)
