On 27 November, the Yaroslavl Regional Court passed a judgement which grants the petition of High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation providing citizen B. with the right to defense and fair trial without erosion. This above surfaced from a copy of the court’s ruling that had been sent to the High Commissioner.
All the issued decrees concerning citizen B. case on traffic rules violation were cancelled. Being under the jurisdiction of the Tutaev Municipal Court all the materials were sent there. In this connection the applicant’s right to be heard in that court and by that judge to whose jurisdiction it is assigned by law was restored.
Earlier the High Commissioner filed a petition addressed to the Chairman of the Yaroslavl Regional Court for the cancellation of the previous court decisions and the direction of the administrative violation minutes and other case materials for consideration according the jurisdiction.
In his address, the High Commissioner drew attention to the fact that the case about administrative offence was examined by the magistrate of the 1st plot of Tutaev Region with noncompliance of the jurisdiction rules established by the article 23.1 of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offences. Consequently, the order and the assigned fine in the amount of 2,500 rubles don’t comply with requirements of the law and must be discharged.
