Commissioner helped a compatriot from Estonia resolve a difficult life situation

09 August 2017

Commissioner for Human Rights in the Leningrad Region Sergey Shabanov was addressed by our compatriot M., a resident of the city of Narva of the Republic of Estonia. The applicant stated that the Kingisepp City Court decided to expel him from the country for violation of the regime of stay on the territory of the Russian Federation. M. agreed with the verdict, realized his offense, and was taken to the Center for Temporary Maintenance of Migrants from the courtroom.

However, M. has been waiting for deportation for a month and a half already. Having finally found out that the reason for that was the error in the judicial decision when writing the applicant’s name, he asked the court to send the corrected document. After waiting for the appointed time, M. called the Office of the Federal Bailiff Service in the Leningrad Region and asked when he would be sent home, because the court decision had been corrected. In response, he was told that the document had not yet been received.

The Commissioner applied to the Kingisepp City Court with a request to clarify the fate of the postal item. The employee of the Office tracked the parcel and found out that it had come to the Office of the Federal Bailiff Service a week and a half ago.

The next day, Sergey Shabanov went to the Center to meet with the applicant. There was also a telephone conversation with the management of the Federal Bailiff Service administration, which assured the Commissioner that all documents were ready, and the bailiffs would leave for the Gatchina District in 30 minutes. The bailiffs did not even have to spend time and money to buy tickets for M. — it was enough to drive him to Ivangorod to the border with Estonia, and there he walked on foot to his house in Narva across the bridge.
