Key facts of the case:

The respondent adopted a decision that the applicant wrongly declared certain plots of lands in order to get some direct agricultural subsidies and ordered the applicant to repay these subsidies to the state budget. The applicant challenged that decision before the administrative courts. The first instance court found for the applicant, although it based its decision on other legal arguments, not the Charter. The respondent appealed the decision of the first instance court before the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania, which rejected the respondent’s appeal, inter alia, on the basis of the provisions of the Charter.
