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.
