We did it...
Thanks to the assistance of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation it was possible to help a disabled woman in a difficult life situation.
Different situations happen in our life. When we need the help of people who have taken the Hippocratic oath, we rely on their attention and understanding, and this is natural. And it is really scary to end up in a state of helplessness.
Thanks to the assistance of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, it was possible to restore a woman’s right to a fair trial.
The High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation received an appeal for the protection of the rights of the disabled person in group 1, 62-year-old Natalya Jankovich, who at that time had been detained for almost a year on the charge of especially serious offence under clause "a", part 2 of Article 126 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation — for the abduction of her own daughter by transporting her to a medical organisation for drug treatment.
An essential task of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is international co-operation. Only collaborative work with foreign colleagues and sense of common purpose may lead to success.
Children are all we have. I am not only High Commissioner for Human Rights but also a mother. And the case I’d like to tell you about was one of the most complicated in my practice.
Article 40 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation provides that everyone shall have the right to a home, and local self-governments shall create conditions for exercising this right.
In a difficult life situation, a person first of all thinks about the well-being of his relatives.
The most terrible thing that can happen to anyone is the loss of a child. In some tragic cases the intolerable situation is aggravated by people indifference.
One of the fundamental goals of the modern society is upbringing and education of the younger generation. It is twice as tough to provide education for children with disabilities, and I try to pay particular attention to such appeals.
