MPs have given the constitutional court the authority to determine the enforceability of the decisions made at the international level on complaints against Russia. This step became necessary and inevitable after a series of politicized decisions by the European court, said state Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin.
MOSCOW, 23 Dec. Granting the constitutional court jurisdiction to determine the enforceability of the ECHR decisions was inevitable after a series of political, questionable decisions, said Wednesday the state Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin.
“Deputies gave the constitutional court the authority to determine the enforceability of the decisions made at the international level on complaints against Russia. This step became necessary and inevitable after a series of politicized and questionable in its justness of the decisions of the European court and other international judicial bodies”, — Naryshkin said, closing the autumn session of the state Duma.
“Yes, the Russian Federation in strict accordance with the basic law of the state gave the European court of justice a number of important powers, but nobody has been allowed to expand their range in one-sided, such a creeping manner, and not passed on to the European court of human rights to revise our Constitution, to assign the judiciary”
Earlier Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law giving the COP the right to accept the impossible enforcement in Russia of decisions of international courts, if they violate the rule of the Russian Constitution. The EU has already stated that he is deeply concerned about the adoption of this law, and now it will analyze the Venice Commission of the Council of Europe. According to the Commission’s report can be prepared during the first half of 2016.
