Страсбург Не Выдержал:Жалобы Россиян Вернули На Национальный Уровень

Posted by Info on 01/10/2010

Европейский суд по правам человека (ЕСПЧ) вынес решение, согласно которому эта инстанция не будет принимать жалобы россиян на судебную волокиту вплоть до исчерпания ими всех возможностей получения “адекватной и достаточной компенсации на национальном уровне”.

На такую меру в Страсбурге пошли в связи с вступившим в мае 2010 года в России законом “О компенсации за нарушение права на судопроизводство в разумный срок или права на исполнение судебного акта в разумный срок”. Согласно нововведению, в течение шести месяцев граждане России могут обжаловать решения об отказе в выплате компенсации и лишь в случае нового отказа они смогут обращаться в ЕСПЧ.

В мае 2010 года российские власти приняли так называемый закон о компенсации. Ссылаясь на этот нормативный акт, в конце сентября ЕСПЧ признал неприемлемыми жалобы сразу пятерых россиян.
