ECHR gives priority communication to application from Ingushetia resident

On November 24 2017, the European Court of Human Rights communicated the application of Ingushetia resident Asya Gubasheva, filed on May 19 2017. Gubasheva’s complaint is about non-enforcement of a court decision giving her custody of her daughter (Article 8) and lack of legal protection (Article 13). The Russian bailiffs’ inaction has meant that Gubasheva has not seen her daughter for more than three years now. The ECHR recognized the mother and her four-year-old daughter as applicants.

In its ruling on Kaimova and others vs Russia (No 24132/12), the ECHR recognized that the Russian authorities violated their positive obligations under Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights by not protecting Kaimov’s life and not conducting an effective investigation into the circumstances of his death in detention.

Complaint in the ECHR from Saida Khalikova about remoteness of her place of detention and failure to provide medical assistance

Saida Khalikova was sentenced by the Moscow district military court in 2015 to five years in a general-regime prison colony. She has been in detention since December 2014. During the investigation, she and her mother Raziyat Isambekova came under pressure from Investigative Committee officials.  Saida has suffered from a blood disorder for many years now. Lawyers from Justice Initiative sent a request to prison colony 28 and enabled her to undergo an out-patient medical examination.  On November 9 2017, Justice Initiative sent to the ECHR an application in which Khalikova and her mother Raziyat Isambekova complain of inadequate medical assistance at prison colony 28 in Volgograd Region.
