The right to access to justice

26 April 2018

The High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation received letter of complain by citizen A. to about unlawful acts against his family on the grounds of national hostility. The applicant pointed out that citizen R., feeling his impunity, insults and threatens his family daily, including an underage child. A. repeatedly appealed to the law enforcement agencies and the prosecutor’s office of the Bryansk region, but no measures were taken on his statements.

Having familiarized with the materials, the High Commissioner sent a request to the prosecutor’s office of the Bryansk region.

According to the response, a criminal case was initiated on the basis of the elements of the crime provided for by part 1 of Article 112 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, but according to the results of the investigation, a decision was made to suspend the inquiry. Afterwards this decision was canceled as unfounded and premature.

The arguments about insulting citizen A. and his family also found their confirmation and, in this connection, the Prosecutor’s Office of the Bryansk district issued a ruling on initiating a case on an administrative offense, which was sent for consideration to the magistrate’s court.

Thus, only after the intervention of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, the violated rights of citizen A. to access justice have been restored.
