The European Court for Human Rights complied with the lawsuit filed by citizens in the case against the Russian state. Anastasia Kopteyeva, the chairperson of Zabaikalsky human rights centre said so in a commentary for Sibir.Realii.
In their lawsuit, the citizens claimed that in cases where they were either suspects or defendants, they were detained for an excessive amount of time.
The Court decided that these people's rights for freedom and personal inviolability (Article 5 of the European Convention for Human Rights) were neglected.
The sum of a fine charged from Russia totals 112,500 Euros.
In total, the ECHR made decisions under lawsuits from 27 citizens from 15 regions of Russia, including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnoyar territory, Bashkortostan, Stavropol territory, Sverdlovsk and Astrakhan oblasts.
Earlier, the European Court of Human Rights filed a lawsuit by the Netherlands against Russia over the crash of the Boeing-777 over Donbas, flying to Kuala Lumpur with flight MH17. The relevant document is published on the website of the European Court.
