The Ministry of Justice responded to the ECHR’s demand to release Navalny


The Minister of Justice of the Russian Federation Konstantin Chuychenko called the ECHR’s demand to release the blogger Alexei Navalny from custody unprecedented. He indicated that such a requirement would not be fulfilled, since it had no legal basis.

In his opinion, this is a clear and gross interference in the activities of the judiciary of a sovereign state. Also Chuychenko decree that the claim is unreasonable and unlawful. According to the minister, the ECHR document does not indicate a single rule of law that would allow the court to release the accused Navalny.

Chuichenko believes that the European judges made a clearly political decision, which can only complicate the restoration of constructive relations with the institutions of the Council of Europe. “

The European Court of Human Rights ruled in the case of Alexei Navalny, for whom the Russian court replaced a suspended sentence with a real one in the Yves Rocher case. As reported in the blog of the oppositionist, the Court of Justice of the ECHR “decided, in the interests of the parties and the proper conduct of the proceedings, to instruct Russia … to release the applicant.” The decision was made on February 16, it follows from a scan of the published document.
