X v. the Netherlands (application no. 72631/17)
The case concerns the refusal by the Arnhem-Leeuwarden Court of Appeal to adjourn her appellate hearing following a conviction for shoplifting, despite her being abroad for professional reasons. The hearing took place in her absence.
Relying on Article 6 §§ 1 (right to a fair trial) and 3 (c) (right to legal assistance of own choosing) of the European Convention on Human Rights, the applicant complains that she was unable to attend her appellate hearing in person.
- Violation of Article 6 §§ 1 and 3 (c)
