Two Russians win $37,000 at European human rights court

Jun 13 2013, 10:06pm CDT | by

Moscow, June 14 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that the Russian authorities must pay over 28,000 euros (around $37,000) to two Russians who took part in an anti-terrorist operation but never received combat allowance.

Moscow, June 14 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that the Russian authorities must pay over 28,000 euros (around $37,000) to two Russians who took part in an anti-terrorist operation but never received combat allowance.

The applicants, Igor Sivograk and Valery Zenov, filed a complaint with the Strasbourg court in 2008, claiming that their rights under the Human Rights Convention had been violated, as the Russian authorities had failed to enforce a 2005 Russian court decision to award them due compensation for participating in combat action.

The ECHR ruled Thursday that Sivograk be paid 14,015 euros ($18,660) in pecuniary damages and 3,000 euros (about $4,000) in non-pecuniary damages, while Zenov will receive 8,468 euros ($11,275) in pecuniary damages and 3,000 euros in non-pecuniary damages.

The Zavodskoi District Court in the Chechen capital of Grozny ordered Chechnya's interior ministry in November 2005 to pay out money due to the applicants for taking part in the counter-terrorist operation in the volatile North Caucasus region.

"The applicants repeatedly attempted to secure the enforcement of that judgment by contacting the debtor authority and other state authorities responsible for payment of the judgment debt," the ECHR said in its judgment.

"They provided the authorities with the necessary documents, including the writ of enforcement issued by the domestic court. However, their attempts were not successful and the judgment remained unenforced."

A Moscow court upheld the Chechen court decision in September 2009, but quashed it in November 2010 following an application by the interior ministry for the case to be reviewed taking into account newly discovered circumstances.

The ECHR declared Thursday that the applicants' complaint was admissible and held that their rights to a fair hearing and protection of property had been violated.

The ruling can be appealed by parties in the Strasbourg court's Grand Chamber within three months.

BBC: 'Civilian' Casualty Figures Supplied by Hamas Require Caution

Aug 8 2014 12:32pm CDT | Source: Big Government

If Israeli attacks in Gaza have been "indiscriminate," as the UN Human Rights Council says, why have they killed three times as many “civilian” men as women? Anthony Reuben, the head of Statistics for BBC News, points out ample reason to be skeptical of the civilian casualty numbers coming out of Gaza: most news organizations have been quoting from the office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), which is providing Hamas-based statistics that defy credibili ...
