Guiding principle: The applicants, four Spanish nationals, Pelagia-Maria Potocka, Piotr Potocki, Dorota Potocka-Radziwill and Anna Potocka complained that they had not had access to a court as required by Article 6 of the Convention. They argued that the Supreme Administrative Court did not have full jurisdiction over questions of fact and law in respect of the part of the proceedings which concerned their application lodged in 1990. This was so since under Polish law the court was only able to examine the lawfulness of the decision under appeal and could not consider any other aspects of the case, such as questions of facts and of expediency.
