European Court of Human Rights has given a judgment in the case Gáll v Hungary.
The applicant, Eszter Mária Gáll, is a Hungarian national who was born in 1954 and lives 
in Szolnok (Hungary). She was a civil servant for the Hungarian Tax Authority for more than 30 years until being dismissed in March 2011. Gáll complained under Article 1 of Protocol No. 1 that the imposition of a 98% tax constituted an unjustified deprivation of property, or else taxation at an excessively disproportionate rate. Moreover, she asserted that Article 14 of the Convention had been violated because only those dismissed from the public sector were subjected to the tax and because a preferential threshold was applicable to only a group of those concerned. The Court concludes that there has been a violation of Article 1 of Protocol No. 1. 
ECHR No. 49570/11 of 25 June 2013
