Analysis The Commission declares the case admissible with respect to Article 3, but not with respect to Article 8 ECHR. In later jurisprudence, to the contrary, the Commission and the Court would develop a prefference for accepting cases under the realm of Article 8 ECHR rather than Article 3 ECHR when they concern matters of bodily integrity.
