Russia: Human Rights

Volume 705: debated on Wednesday 19 November 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many judgments of the European Court of Human Rights given against Russia remain unimplemented; and how much compensation awarded to Russian persons is outstanding. [HL5375]

The Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe supervises the execution of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. It makes available a simplified global database of all pending cases for execution control. While this database is not completely up to date, as it takes time for judgments to become final and does not include some of the older cases, it is the best available public source of information on judgments that remain unimplemented. The database can be accessed at #TopOfPage and includes contact details to follow up any case not listed on the database with the secretariat.

The Government fully support the work of the European Court of Human Rights and raise the implementation of the court's judgments with Russia in their bilateral human rights dialogues.
