Rights of 60 thousand New Moscow inhabitants to have their residence ackowledged dangerous restored

04 March 2016

With assistance of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Russia rights of over 60 thousand citizens were restored — the City Interdepartmental Commission for Housing Fund of Moscow was given the right to acknowledge apartment buildings in New Moscow to be dangerous and subject to demolition and reconstruction. Before, none of the city bodies had this right, so people had to live in unsafe buildings.

In reply to her request to settle the situation, the High Commissioner was officially informed of the adopted decision in the end of February.

In 2015, the High Commissioner received a complaint of a New Moscow resident, whose multiple petitions to acknowledge her residence to be dangerous were given no due attention by executive authorities of Moscow. She was also refused assessment of the apartment building, since starting from 1 July 2012 on the territories appended to Moscow there was neither an authorised body, nor a procedure to acknowledge an apartment building to be dangerous.

In our state, the inviolability of private property is protected by law, but even it sometimes cannot stop scammers striving to cash in on someone’s grief.
