MOSCOW, July 03./ITAR-TASS/. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) did not consider Georgia’s claims to Russia’s suspected violation of the convention banning discrimination for any reasons. The court found that information about deportation of Georgian citizens in 2006 related only to terms of keeping illegal migrants at temporary centres, the Russian Justice Ministry said in a statement.

On Thursday, the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights announced a ruling in Georgia vs Russia affair in which Georgia accused Russian authorities of discriminatory policy against ethnic Georgians in the autumn of 2006.

“The European Court refused to try Georgia’s claims over Russia’s violation of Article 14 of the convention banning discrimination for any reasons and Article 18 of the convention setting limits of possible restrictions to human rights. The court did not find deportation cases of Georgian citizens who were staying illegally in Russia,” the Justice Ministry said.

“ECHR-found violations concern only actions related with the procedure of taking deportation decisions and terms in which illegal migrants and people who violated the rules of stay in Russia stipulated in Russian legislation are being kept at temporary centres,” the Justice Ministry noted.
