ECHR Rules On 1549 Cases Against Georgia After Russia Conflict

Some 1,549 cases against Georgia arising from the Georgia-Russia conflict of August 2008 have been struck out by the European Court of Human Rights.

The cases are part of a group of more than 3,300 individual applications against Georgia.

The decision, announced today, follows failures to respond by legal representatives working on cases related to hostilities on the territory of South Ossetia which involved the armed forces of Georgia and Russia as well as members of South-Ossetia militia.

The applicants are inhabitants of South Ossetia, servicemen of the Russian Army assigned to the peace-keeping battalion which was deployed in Tskhinvali at the relevant time or their next-of-kin.
