ECtHR recognizes violations of residents’ rights in Southern Russia

Compensation for violation of rights during trials and in places of deprivation of liberty, in particular, placement in a cage at trial and constant video surveillance in a cell, should be paid to natives of Dagestan, the Volgograd Region, and Kuban, the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has ruled.

The natives of Southern Russia complained mainly about their detention in a metal cage in courtroom. The ECtHR found that such practices constituted an insult to human dignity and degrading treatment prohibited by Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Ramin Aliev and Vladimir Murashkin from the Krasnodar Territory and Viktor Dobrioglo from the Volgograd Region were awarded compensation of 7500 euros each.

Omar Ismailov from Dagestan complained about constant video surveillance in solitary confinement in a penal colony where he was serving his sentence in 2021. The ECtHR also awarded him compensation of 7500 euros.
