CM/Inf/DH(2006)43 Addendum 4 December 20061

Execution of judgments by the Russian Federation:
Delays in reporting the measures taken

Addendum to the Memorandum prepared by the Department for the execution of the European Court’s judgments (Application of Article 46 of the ECHR)



1. Following the examination of this issue at the 976th meeting, the Secretariat was informed that the situation was being considered by various domestic authorities at appropriate level and the necessary solutions to this problem were being sought.

2. Since the 976th DH meeting, the requested information on the individual and the general measures as well as the actions plans were provided in certain cases as indicated in the appended table. Information regarding other cases pointed out in the Memorandum CM/InfMDH(2006)43 is awaited.

3. In this context, the Russian authorities may also wish to consider a more general issue of a special mechanism for coordination between domestic institutions and bodies involved in the execution process with a view to speedily implementing the Court’s judgments. Given the constantly increasing number of the judgments delivered against the Russian Federation, the setting up of such a domestic mechanism would appear timely and appropriate.
