Tagayeva and Others v. Russia (applications nos. 26562/07, 14755/08, 49339/08, 49380/08, 51313/08, 21294/11, and 37096/11)

The case originates in seven applications, brought by 447 Russian nationals.

It concerns the terrorist attack on a school in Beslan, North Ossetia (Russia), in September 2004, and the ensuing hostage-taking, siege and storming of the school, which resulted in the deaths of over 330 civilians, including over 180 children, and injuries to over 750 persons. Some of the applicants were taken hostage and/or injured; others are family members of those taken hostage, killed or injured.

Some applicants maintain that the deaths were the result of a disproportionate use of force by the authorities. Some applicants further allege violations of Articles 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment), 6 (right to a fair trial), 8 (right to respect for private and family life), 10 (freedom of expression) and 13 (right to an effective remedy).

The seven applications were lodged with the European Court of Human Rights between June 2007 and May 2011. The case was communicated to the Russian Government for observations on 10 April 2012. A Chamber hearing was heard on the case in Strasbourg on 14 October 2014.

– struck four persons out of its list of applicants;
– declared inadmissible the applications lodged by 51 applicants under Articles 2 and 13 of the
– declared admissible, without prejudging the merits, the remaining applicants’ complaints under
