      Residents of Northern Caucasus will be able to apply to the Strasbourg
      Court directly

      In its resolution adopted by majority vote the PACE calls to be more
      flexible in considering applications originated from the North Caucasian
      region of Russia, i.e. to provide an opportunity for the applicants from
      North Caucasus to address the Strasbourg Court directly, without waiting
      for exhaustion of all local and national instances and remedies.

      The resolution was adopted on the report on Cyprian parliamentarian
      Christos Purgurides. However, the text of the resolution does not
      specify the way the applicants from these regions can use this
      alternative, the RIA "Novosti" reports.

      Mr Purgurides' report states that the authorities are putting pressure
      on the residents of Northern Caucasus who would like to apply to the
      Strasbourg Court in connection for defence of their human rights. In the
      opinion of the author, in Russia "advocates and NGO members who defend
      the victims of violations of human rights are under pressure."

      The "Echo Moskvy" Radio reminds that as of today Russia is in the lead
      by the number of applications filed to the European Court for Human Rights.
