The European Court of Human Rights has refused to accept a petition filed by a Vilnius district official complaining over the rejected permit to name a school after 1831 uprising hero Emilija Pliaterytė but use the Polish form of the name, Emilii Plater.

The Justice Ministry published the court's ruling on Friday. According to the information published on the ministry's website, the court said Vilnius district municipality's secretary Renata Cytacka "failed to exhaust domestic remedies and the application must be declared inadmissible."

Furthermore, the court noted that six other applicants had failed to sign the petition, and Cytacka did no provide any documents authorizing her to represent them or the school council.

The conflict emerged after Lithuanian courts decided in 2008 that the form Emilii Plater fell short of requirements of the official languages, consequently, a Lavoriškės school could not be given the name.

Pliaterytė is a Lithuanian and Polish hero of the 1831 uprising against the Russian tzar administration. Born in a family of counts, she formed a guerrilla unit at the age of 24 and occupied Zarasai. She later joined the guerrilla operating in Ukmergė district and participated in fighting near Maišiagala, Kaunas, and Saulėnai. She died later that year.

Pliaterytė is often dubbed the Lithuanian Jeanne d'Arc.

According to data provided by Vilnius Municipality, the district has about 100,000 residents, 61 percent of which are Polish-speakers.
