The case was considered from the point of view of the state’s obligations to protect rights from violation by other persons, in this case the former employer of the applicant. Listing the factors that did not consider the Romanian courts in examining the petitioner’s case, the European Court concluded that the state does not adequately protect the right to inviolability of the applicant’s private life from intrusion. On this basis, the Court found a violation of the rights of the applicant.
