Facts of the case Applicant was adopted by a woman in the UK; they moved to Ireland. When the woman died, he received only a part of the inherentence biological children and children adopted under Irish law got.
Analysis The Commission stressed that although it was true the applicant was accorded a less privileged status than persons adopted under Irish law, this difference in treatment was based on an objective and reasonable criterion and thus not discriminatory. Consequently, the case does not disclose any appearance of a violation of Article 14 (Art. 14) in conjunction with Article 8 (Art. 8) of the Convention.
