Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend I.Alizade / One more decision of the European Court on Human Rights regarding Azerbaijan was implemented on the basis of Nabat Ramazanova's lawsuit, who is Chair of the Public Union for Protection of Rights of the Homeless and Non-Protected Baku Population, said the representative of Azerbaijan to the European Court on Human Rights, Chingiz Askerov, on 1 August.
Askerov stressed that the decision of the Court has been fully implemented. The Government of Azerbaijan paid €6,000 compensation to Ramazanova, with €4,000 for material and moral damages and €2,000 for expenses. Considering the lawsuit by Ramazanova and other citizens, the European Court came to the conclusion that the Government of Azerbaijan has violated human rights described in Article 11 (freedom of unity) of the Convention on Human Rights and Freedoms.
The Public Union for Protection of Rights of the Homeless and Non-Protected Baku Population was established in 2001. The court proceeding took place due to the government's refusal to take the organization into State registration. The Justice Ministry has returned the documents for registration four times. In December 2002, the organization appealed to the European Court on Human Rights.
