Navalny And Yashin Case
April 24, 2015 15:34


 The European Court of Human Rights rejected the Russia’s appeal to revise a satisfactory solution on the complaint of the member of the federal political council of RPR-Parnas Ilya Yashin and leader of the “Party of Progress” Aleksei Navalny.

This was reported by RIA “Novosti” on Tuesday, April 21. “The court did not refer the case of Navalny and Yashin to the Grand Chamber. Thus, the solution has entered into legal force”- the court representative told to the agency. 

Yashin and Navalny were detained on December 5, 2011, after the opposition rally on Chistye Ponds in Moscow. A protest campaign was held there on that day in connection with the voting results in the elections to the State Duma held on the day before - the leading party was “United Russia”. 

The opposition rally was sanctioned by the city authorities, but some activists marched towards Lubyanka. Navalny and Yashin were sentenced to administrative arrest for 15 days. The European Court of Human Rights admitted that four articles of the European Convention on Human Rights were violated during the detention of the opposition politicians. In particular, they violated the provisions guaranteeing freedom of assembly and prohibiting inhuman or degrading treatment. 

The violations of the right to liberty and security, as well and the right to a fair trial were also detected. The resolution of the European Court of Human Rights obliged Russia to pay compensation to Navalny and Yashin in the amount of 26 thousand euros each.
