*Firth and others v United Kingdom (App. No. 47784/09)

Prison – Prisoner. Ten British prisoners issued proceedings against the United Kingdom, complaining that they had been prevented from voting in European Parliament elections in violation of art 3 of the First Protocol to the Convention (A3P1). The European Court of Human Rights held that there had been a violation of A3P1. However, it refused damages, as the finding of a violation constituted sufficient just satisfaction for any non-pecuniary damage sustained by the applicants.
