Georgian survivors of Soviet-era repression no longer denied their right to compensation


On 2 February 2010 the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) issued a judgment in the case of Klaus and Yuri Kiladze v Georgia (No. 7975/06), which enabled thousands of survivors of Soviet-era repression to seek compensation for gross human rights violations committed against them during the Soviet  era. The application, brought by the Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association (GYLA) and EHRAC, alleged that the Government of Georgia had failed to enact the law enabling the victims of repression to receive the compensation they were entitled to.
