MOSCOW, February 14 (Itar-Tass) —— The number of appeals from Russia to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) reduced last year, Russian Supreme Court Chairman Vyacheslav Lebedev said on Tuesday.
A total of 12,465 claims vs. Russia were lodged with the ECHR in 2011, which was by 13% less than the year before, he said, adding that the ECHR turned down 98% of the claims.
Last year the court made 121 rulings regarding claims vs. Russia (the number stood at 204 in 2010).
The Russian Supreme Court Presidium reviewed 24 cases in compliance with the ECHR rulings.
