Moskalkova proposes to improve ECHR accessibility for Russian citizens
MOSCOW, March 27 (RAPSI) – Russia’s ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova during a meeting with President of the European Court of Human Rights Guido Raimondi on Wednesday proposed to create a special Internet site to inform Russians about the course of complaints examination in the ECHR.
Moskalkova and Raimondi also discussed a set of problematic issues connected with the improvement of the ECHR openness and availability to Russian nationals.
In particular, Russia’s human rights commissioner submitted her comment on the execution of the ECHR ban on cages in courtrooms to Raimondi. She added that this decision of the European Court of Human Rights had a very positive influence on Russia’s law enforcement practice, according to the statement published on her Instagram page.
Moskalkova arrived in Strasbourg on March 25.
On March 26, she met the Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland and the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights Dunja Mijatović. She is also expected to meet Director of the Office of the Directorate General of Programmes of the Council of Europe Verena Taylor and Director General of Human Rights and Rule of Law of the Council of Europe Christos Giakoumopoulos.
