Judgment concerning the Russian Federation

Hammer
06/06/23

In the case of Navalnyy v. Russia (no. 3) the Court held that there had been a violation of the right to life/investigation (procedural aspect).

The case concerned the refusal of the Russian authorities to open criminal proceedings into Aleksey Navalnyy’s alleged poisoning in 2020 which led to his falling into a coma and being put on life support.

The Court found that the inquiry conducted by the Russian authorities had not been open to scrutiny and had made no allowance for the victim’s right to participate in the proceedings and had not been capable of leading to the establishment of the relevant facts and the identification and, if appropriate, punishment of those responsible.
