On March 6, Commissioner for Human Rights in the Ivanovo Region Natalia Kovaleva took part in a meeting dedicated to summing up the results of the work of the judicial system of the Ivanovo Region for 2017.
In her speech, Natalia Kovaleva drew attention to the fact that among the appeals to the authorized person, complaints about unlawfulness, injustice and bias of the court decision take an important place.
"And this is understandable because in the proceedings each side wants the court to render a decision in its favor. And, in practice, each side that lost the court, believes that this decision is unfair," the Ombudsman stressed.
Due to the fact that the actions and decisions of the judiciary directly affect the rights and freedoms of people, the Commissioner analyze incoming complaints and highlight systemic problems in the activities of the courts. Among them, the most frequently mentioned are complaints about the delay in obtaining a copy of the court’s decision, postal and written support for the trial, and also for the conduct of the trial.
