RJI replies to Russian Government’s claims concerning execution of European Court judgments on the North Caucasus

On 2 September 2015 RJI replied to the Russian Government’s submission to the Committee of Ministers of 24 July 2015, which contained the Government’s most recent Action Plan on the execution of the Aslakhanova judgment and the entire group of Chechen cases in general. 

RJI found that the Government’s action plan did not address the majority of systemic problems described in the European Court’s Aslakhanova judgment, and that certain information presented by the Government was unclear or misleading.

In particular, RJI requested the Government to clarify information presented concerning the number of genotypes created of missing persons in the North Caucasus, and dismissed as misleading the Government’s claim to have identified over 60 bodies in the context of the execution of judgments from the North Caucasus.
