Arseniev v. Republic of Moldova (nos. 10614/06 and 10620/06)
The applicant, Igor Arseniev, is a Moldovan national who was born in 1959 and is serving a 20-year prison sentence for murder in a prison in Chişinău.

Relying on Article 3 (prohibition of inhuman or degrading treatment) of the European Convention on Human Rights, he complains about the inhuman conditions of his detention since 2003, notably on account of severe overcrowding, quantity and quality of food and hygiene.

He alleges in particular that, detained in those conditions for up to 23 hours per day, his psychiatric health has suffered. Further relying on Article 6 (right of access to court), he also complains that the courts refused to examine a number of civil proceedings he had brought notably against the prison authorities as he could not pay the court fees and that his appeal in cassation in the criminal proceedings against him was rejected as it had not been typed.

He also alleges under Article 6 that his lawyer in the criminal proceedings had not properly represented him.
