69 11 hrcd [ 2000 ] AMANN v. SWITZERLAND Right to respect for private life – violation Article 8 Law allowing interference with private life and correspondence through secret surveillance measures must be particularly detailed. Swiss law which authorized recording of telephone call received by businessperson from Soviet Embassy did not meet this standard. The storing by a public authority of data relating to an individual amounted in itself to an interference in “private life”, which must not be interpreted restrictively. Swiss law authorizing storage of data did not contain specific and detailed provisions on the gathering, recording and storing of information. In a judgment delivered on 16 February 2000 in the case of Amann v. Switzerland , the European Court of Human Rights held unanimously that there had been a violation of Article 8 (right to respect for private life and correspondence) of the European Convention on Human Rights. It also held unanimously that there had not been a violation of Article 13 (right to an effective remedy) of the Convention. Under Article 41 (just satisfaction) of the Convention, the Court awarded the applicant 7 , 082 . 15 Swiss francs (CHF) for legal costs and expenses.
