A Romanian man has filed a claim against Ireland at the European Court of Human Rights, after being arrested and sentenced for being a pimp.
His lawyer, Radu Florin, said they are asking for 1 million Euros in moral damages.
Mihai Selaru, 37, who was in prison for seven months after he was accused of being a pimp in Ireland, says he was kept without food and water and Irish policemen tried to force him to admit he was guilty, he told local media.
Mihai Selaru was working in the construction industry in Dublin when he was arrested but claims he was not guilty of running a brothel and keeping prostitutes, for which he was sentenced by a Dublin Court to three years suspended jail, his lawyer said.
He was expelled from Ireland in April with a ban on entering Irish territory for 10 years.
His lawyer, Radu Florin, said he filed a claim against the Irish state because his client’s preventive arrest was too long – 31 hours instead of the maximum 24hours.
They also say he was deprived of his liberty because he was escorted after the sentence and taken to the airport to fly back to Romania, although he was no longer under arrest.
His lawyer also says the Irish lawyers appointed to represent him did not defend his rights properly, and even told him not to make an appeal.
