Information on the 1250th (Human Rights) Meeting of the Committee of Ministers' Deputies of the Council of Europe

The Committee of Ministers' Deputies of the Council of Europe convened its 1250th (Human Rights) meeting from 8 to 10 March 2016.  One of the issues on the agenda of the meeting was execution of the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights concerning the case of Georgia v. Russia. In 2014 the European Court of Human Rights delivered a judgment in favour for Georgia into an inter-state complaint lodged by Georgia against Russia in connection to detention and deportation of hundreds of Georgian nationals from late September 2006 to early 2007.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia welcomes the decision adopted by the Committee of Ministers' Deputies on execution of the judgment of the European Court of Human Rights concerning the case of Georgia v. Russia, calling upon Russia to submit further information on the implementation of their action plan and to supplement it with an analysis of how the measures referred to will prevent a similar administrative practice in the future. The Decision also invited the Russian authorities to provide information on the measures to ensure their compliance in the future with their obligation under Article 38 to furnish all necessary facilities to the European Court.
