Court ruling to refuse to initiate criminal case dismissed

20 December 2016

The rights of Rostov-on-Don citizens’ to access to justice were restored with support from the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation.

Ms I. complained to the High Commissioner against wrongful actions of law-enforcement officers of the Voroshilovskiy District Police Station. The complainant reported that law-enforcement officials insulted and injured her and her husband when arresting the spouses.

The High Commissioner requested the Prosecutor’s Office of Rostov Region to verify the complainant’s arguments.

Having revealed gross violations, the Prosecutor’s Office revoked the court ruling to refuse to open a criminal case concerning illegal actions of the law-enforcement officers.

Officials guilty of the procrastination and unjustified court ruling were held liable for them.

Thus, with the help of the High Commissioner the violations of the criminal procedure legislation committed during the criminal case institution were eliminated.
