The case of Lyalyakin v. Russia

In the case of Lyalyakin v. Russia (application no. 31305/09) the European Court of Human Rights held, unanimously, that there had been:
a violation of Article 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment) of the European Convention on Human Rights, both on account of Mr Lyalyakin’s treatment and on account of the authorities’ failure to conduct an effective investigation into his complaints.
The case concerned a complaint by a conscript about degrading treatment when he was caught trying to escape from the army, including appearing undressed in front of other soldiers.
The Court, whilst recognising the need to maintain military discipline within the army, found that the conscript’s public humiliation had been unnecessary and could not be justified merely as a means of preventing his escape from the unit.
The Court held that Russia was to pay Mr Lyalyakin 15,000 euros (EUR) in respect of non-pecuniary damage and EUR 825.72 in respect of costs and expenses.
