Association Les Témoins de Jehovah v. France (application no. 8916/05)

The applicant is the French association “Les Témoins de Jéhovah”. By a judgment of 30 June 2011 the Court held that there had been a violation of Article 9 (freedom of
thought, conscience and religion) concerning the taxation of hand-to-hand gifts received by the association between 1993 and 1996. Today’s judgment concerned the question of just satisfaction (Article 41). The Court held that France is to reimburse the applicant association 4,590,295 euros (EUR) for the taxes unduly paid and EUR 55,000 for costs and expenses.
