Right of defence restored

The Saratov Regional Court Panel acknowledged the arguments presented by the Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia concerning reversal of the cassation judgement related to convict S. and assignment of a new hearing with participation of an advocate sufficient. The fact that the complainant’s rights have been restored became known on 22 May from the official reply of the court in response to the Commissioner’s request.

The Commissioner’s letter of appeal stated that the situation when the convict was deprived of his legal right of defence in an appeal hearing infringed the guaranteed access to justice. By resolution of the Saratov Regional Court Panel as of 12 May 2015 the previous court decision was cancelled and a new hearing is to be held, so that the interests of Mr S. will be defended by an advocate.
