The applicant, Feti Ateş, is a Turkish national who was born in 1972 and lives in Edirne (Turkey).

He was arrested on suspicion of belonging to an armed group and placed in pre-trial detention in September 1996. Even though he was released in March 2006, the proceedings against him are still pending. He complained about the length of his pre-trial detention and relied on Article 5 § 3 (right to liberty and security).

The Court held unanimously that there had been a violation of Article 5 § 3. (The judgment is available only in French.)
