Romania was sentenced by the European Court Of Human Rights on Tuesday for violating the right not to be subjected to torture and the right to a fair trial under the European Convention on Human Rights in the case of an underaged person in which the state authorities proved incapable of defending him from his father's aggressions, NGO APADOR-CH has announced.

The D.M.D case against Romania came before the European Court of Human Rights in 2013, after the child's mother was in litigation for eight years trying to prove the bad treatment applied by the child's father.

The court found that the state authorities did nothing to protect the baby D.M.D which was three years old at the time of the mother's first complaint, that the police needed four complaints in order to take action and the Romanian justice ruled the father was not so aggressive with the child in order to give him a sentence of more than one year with adjournment.
