Janowiec and Others v Russia


In January 2013 EHRAC joined forces with the Russian NGO Memorial, and the Essex Transitional Justice Network as third party interveners in the Grand Chamber referral of the case of Janowiec and Others v Russia (Nos. 55508/07 and 29520/09) 16.04.12. This potentially groundbreaking case concerns the historic Katyn Massacre, in which over 21,000 Polish prisoners were executed without trial by Soviet forces in 1940 and buried in mass graves in the Katyn forest.
