STATE:
Norway
OUTCOME:
No violation
  • SUBJECT MATTER:

    Right to a fair trial. Presumption of innocence.


    DETAIL:

    The applicant complains that her right to be presumed innocent was breached as, in its decision on compensation, the Norwegian court linked the matter closely to the criminal case, in which she was acquitted; and that the hearing was unfair as the court failed to give adequate reasons for the decision to award compensation.
