The Applicant submitted the Referral to the Court stating that his criminal proceedings were unfair pursuant to Article 31 of the Constitution in conjunction with Article 6 of the ECHR, and thus that there has been a violation of Article 29 of the Constitution and Article 5 paragraphs 3 and 4 of the ECHR, because he was unlawfully deprived of liberty.
Analyzing the allegations of the Applicant, the Court found that there has been no violation of Article 5 paragraphs 3 and 4 of the ECHR, because the courts complied with all procedural guarantees.
