Facts of the case The applicant complains that his right for private and family life and his correspondence has been violated by reason of the fact that, during his detention on remand, the Investigating Judge had communicated the contents of his correspondence to his co-accused and thus caused him damage.
Analysis The Commission refers to its earlier decision in this matter and stresses that the complaint is essentially the same and so must be dismissed. To be fair though, the Commission did not, in that case, assess a potention violation of Article 8 ECHR.
