ECtHR obliges Azerbaijani authorities to pay 146,000 euros for demolished house

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has awarded the citizen of Azerbaijan, Adalyat Akhverdiev, a large compensation for the violation of his right to private property, obliging the authorities of this country to pay 146,000 euros under his complaint.

The applicant claimed a fair compensation for his forced resettlement and demolition of his house for the implementation of a new construction project.

"Adalyat Akhverdiev lived in a settlement village in the Narimanov District of Baku. In 2009, his house was demolished against the will of the owner under the pretext of alienation for the state needs. Akhverdiev was offered an apartment in the apartment block built in the place of a former old cemetery, but he refused, treating it as an unfair compensation for the demolished house," Fuad Agaev, an advocate, has explained.

As noted by Khalid Agaliev, an expert of the Civil Society Platform of Azerbaijan, there was never such a large compensation claimed from the Azerbaijani authorities for all the time when Azerbaijan is under the jurisdiction of the ECtHR.
