Migon v. Poland, n24244/94, (2002) ECHR 518 (25 June 2002)
The text of this case can be found on the European Court of Human Rights' HUDOC database.

Holding: The Court ruled that Article 5 4 of the European Convention does not compel the State parties to set up a second level of jurisdiction for the examination of applications for release from detention. The intervention of one organ satisfies this provision on condition that the procedure followed has a judicial character and gives to the individual concerned appropriate guarantees commensurate with the deprivation of liberty in question.
