EHRAC Annual Report 2009
EHRAC’s 2009 Annual Report is now available online. Please click the link below to read the report in full.
In 2009, EHRAC’s continuing human rights litigation partnership with Memorial HRC led to 12 successful judgments before the European Court of Human Rights concerning enforced disappearances and the right to life in Chechnya, fair trial, unlawful detention and extradition.
Substantial work was done this year on cases arising from the armed conflict between Georgia and Russia in 2008, which has involved close collaboration with the Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association (GYLA) and with Memorial HRC. With GYLA we are acting in 32 groups of cases for 134 Georgian applicants from villages within South Ossetia and the surrounding area. We also extended our work into Siberia for the first time, as a result of a link-up with the South Siberian Human Rights Centre.
