Russia to pay Khoroshavin 5,000-euro compensation awarded by ECHR
MOSCOW. March 6 (Interfax) - Russia is required to enforce the decision of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) on the payment of 5,100 euros to ex-Sakhalin region governor Alexander Khoroshavin for his lengthy imprisonment on trial, the press service for the Russian Justice Ministry said.
"The ruling of the ECHR in the appeal Khoroshavin vs. Russia has entered into effect and cannot be appealed," the press service said in a response to Interfax request obtained on Wednesday.
The ECHR said earlier on Wednesday that the court ruled that Russian courts had violated the Convention on Human Rights with respect to Khoroshavin.
The arguments listed in the appeal attest to violations of the Provision 3 of the Article 5 of the Convention dealing with extensive period of pre-trial detention, therefore, he was awarded compensation in the amount of 5,100 euros, the ECHR told Interfax.
According to the court's ruling of February 21, while considering the extension of the period Khoroshavin's remand, Russian courts were incapable of evaluating his personal situation and consider imposing a non-custodial measure of restraint on him.
Khoroshavin filed an appeal with the ECHR as early as 2015. The ex-governor complained against the unlawfulness of a measure of restraint in the form of placement in custody imposed on him and its further extensions.
On February 9, 2018, the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk City Court found Khoroshavin guilty of receiving bribes and legalizing proceeds of crime as part of a criminal group. He was sentenced to 13 years in a maximum-security penal colony, fined 500 million rubles and stripped of the state awards bestowed on him.
