Navalny’s release was demanded by the Strasbourg court

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) called on Russia on Wednesday to release Alexei Navalny, an imprisoned opposition politician, with immediate effect.

According to the information, on January 20, Navalny filed his complaints about his detention with a court based under the auspices of the Strasbourg-based Council of Europe, which has now requested his release, MTI is quoted as saying.

As it was written, the answers given to Russia to investigate the grievances contained in the request were disputed by Navalny. In his view, the measures listed by the Russian government did not provide him with sufficient protection for his life and health.

According to the court, given the nature and extent of the risks to the applicant’s life and the general circumstances of his detention, it was “prima facie” clear that an interim measure was necessary under Article 39 of the Rules of Procedure. They added that the measure under the relevant article does not prejudge subsequent decisions on the case.

The ECtHR will only grant interim measures in exceptional cases where, in their absence, the complainants would face a risk of irreversible damage.
