Type of privacy Economic privacy
Keywords Widow; pension; criteria
Facts of the case A widow of a victim of a Nazi persecution has the right to a widow’s pension, if a pension had been granted to her deceased husband under this Act. However, this is limited to such persons only who married before 2 June 1956. Consequently a widow is not entitled to such a pension if she had married the victim of Nazi persecution after this date. This is unfair, according to the applicant.
Analysis The Commission does not see what could be the interference with Article 8 ECHR.
