Judgment concerning the Russian Federation

Judges of the ECHR

In the case of K.J. and Others v. Russia the Court held that there had been several violations of the Convention.

The case concerned the Russian authorities’ removal orders in respect of three North Korean citizens to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). It also concerned the detention of two other applicants in Russia.

The Court found that by handing an applicant over to the DPRK’s officials, the Russian authorities have put him at real risk of torture or death.
