ECHR’s decision on Georgia criticized by South Ossetia

2011-01-11 12:51

12127.jpegSouth-Ossetian ombudsman David Sanakoyev believes the decision taken by European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg to stop the court proceedings on almost half of the cases against Georgia regarding the war in South Ossetia in 2008 to be unfair.


According to IA OSinform, Sanakoyev underlined that he is presently studying the dismissal of 1 549 suits against the Georgian party. "I can only say that many claimants are the citizens of South Ossetia and Russian peacemakers and that the decision taken by the European Court would be unfair in their respect, for they were subject to severe aggression on Georgia's part in August 2008", - Sanakoyev added.

As was reported earlier, ECHR is going to cease court proceedings in respect of 1 549 cases connected with the violation of provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights during the Georgian aggression in August 2008.

"The people of South Ossetia filed 3,3 thousand individual claims against Georgia with Strasbourg Court concerning the war in South Ossetia in August 2008, - the communique goes. - The claimants point at the violation by Georgia of a number of articles of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights".

At the same time, it was underlined that the decision on ceasing court proceedings on half of the cases was taken because the court did not receive the required information.
