Romania: Embryo seizure family rights battle set for Strasbourg court judgement

A married Romanian couple will find out tomorrow if human rights judges agree that its right to family life has been violated by national authorities.

Daniela Nedescu and Călin Nedescu, from Bucharest, have brought the case Nedescu v. Romania (no. 70035/10) against Romania, claiming to have been prevented from having another child, after Romanian prosecuting auhorities ordered the seizure of embryos.

The couple won court orders in their favour to retrieve the embryos, but they were not able to fulfil them.

Relying on Article 8 (right to respect for private and family life), the couple complains of a disproportionate interference which has lasted more than six years.
