Ramzy v. The Netherlands

Legal Case

On 22 November 2005, REDRESS and Amnesty International, The Association for the Prevention of Torture, Human Rights Watch, Interights, The International Commission of Jurists, and the Open Society Justice Initiative, intervened in Ramzy v. The Netherlands (Application no. 25424/05) before the European Court of Human Rights.

The case was ruled admissible in 2008. However, on 20 July 2010 the Court gave judgment and decided to strike out the case. It noted that Mr Ramzy’s legal representatives did not know his whereabouts and so could not answer the Court’s questions. It concluded that Mr Ramzy had lost interest in pursuing his application and decided to strike out the case.
