FACTS AND PROCEDURE

The applicant company’s details are set out in the appended table.

The applicant company was represented by Mr G. Szabolcs, a lawyer practising in Budapest.

Its complaints under Article 6 § 1 of the Convention concerning the excessive length of civil proceedings were communicated to the Hungarian Government (“the Government”).

THE LAW

Complaints underArticle 6 § 1 of the Convention

In the present application, having examined all the material before it, the Court considers that for the reasons stated below, the respondent Government cannot be held liable for the protraction of the case.

In particular, the Court notes that the overall length of the relevant periods (see the appended table) did not exceed a reasonable time within the meaning of Article 6 § 1 of the Convention.

In view of the above, the Court finds that these complaints are manifestly ill-founded and must be rejected in accordance with Article 35 §§ 3 and 4 of the Convention.

For these reasons, the Court, unanimously,

Declares the application inadmissible.

Done in English and notified in writing on 7 February 2019.
