The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the floor space of a collective cell must not be less than 3 m2 . If this is the case, the European Court alleges a violation of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The amount is calculated on the basis of AUD 311 per day of detention.
If the state is convicted, it will not be the first time. Last December, the State was already ordered to pay approximately 13 million francs to the twelve detainees or former detainees who had claimed nearly 53 million francs.
