Russian security services guilty in the deaths of ‘Nord-Ost’
Written by ТВ «ДО///ДЬ»   
Вторник, 20 Декабрь 2011

Strasbourg reaches a decision on ‘Nord-Ost’. On December 20th, the European Court of Human Rights almost fully satisfied claims by victims and relatives of the deceased victims of the terrorist attack on the theatrical center at Dubrovka.

The applicants themselves consider today’s decision by Strasbourg to be a real victory, and had been waiting for several years. Now they hope that an objective investigation into the incident will take place. The victims and relatives of the deceased hostages filed their claims with the European Court back in 2003.

In their petitions, they demanded that those who planned the hostage rescue operation be brought to justice. The security forces at the time released a poisonous gas into the auditorium where the audience and actors of the musical ‘Nord-Ost’ were being held hostage. Information about the gas is still a secret. The plaintiffs believe that the use of this gas killed and injured not only the terrorists, but a large number of hostages as well.

They also state that the government was unable to organize necessary medical assistance to the victims. There were no measures taken to block off traffic so that ambulances could quickly reach the hospitals, and physicians at the hospitals simply had no idea how to treat people poisoned by an unknown gas. In their lawsuits, they also pointed out that there was no effective investigation into the incident.

As it has now become known, Strasbourg found for the victims. The court decided that the Russian authorities had violated fundamental provisions of the Convention on Human Rights, and agreed with almost all the plaintiffs’ demands. Tatiana Karpova, head of the ‘Nord-Ost’ public movement and one of the applicants, called the decision long awaited, and just. At the same time she expressed regret that the truth can only be achieved in the West.

Karpova: “We’ve been waiting for this decision by the European Court for eight and a half years. We’ve been through all the Russian courts, where our treatment was a total outrage. The courts merely acted on behalf of the government, which at that time was headed by Mr. Putin. We didn’t even have the right in these courts to call witnesses, we weren’t listened to, and in the city courts they merely scoffed at us. We’re infinitely joyful and happy that we won today, because someday the people need to be told the truth. Their statement, that everything was done to save the hostages, didn’t satisfy us. Nothing was done, it was all a mess and people could’ve been saved. They could’ve been saved professionally.”

Karina Moskalenko, the attorney representing the interests of victims, spoke on the importance of today’s decision. According to Moskalenko, the Russian authorities are now required to conduct a new investigation, and identify those responsible for the fact that 130 died following the storming of Dubrovka.

Moskalenko: “The Russian authorities have no choice but to open a criminal case on the actions, the planning and implementation of this operation, to find out where they acted improperly, and who didn’t organize proper assistance. There are a lot of questions. An objective investigation should be carried out on all these issues, since there never was such before, and these materials should be transferred to the court.”

Moskalenko added that, according to the European Court, Russia would have to pay all the applicants compensation of 8,000 to 60,000 euros. The money, however, was not important in this issue — the primary task was to find out what really happened at ‘Nord-Ost’, and who should be punished for it.

1. европейский суд
Written by Serge Племянников, on 23-12-2011 14:35
решение суда относится только к тем, кто подавал иски в европейские и российские суды, или же ко всем жертвам?
2. решение ЕСПЧ
Written by Дмитрий Миловидов, on 24-12-2011 16:13
Карина Москаленко 22.12.11 на пресс -конференции подтвердила, что на основании Решения ЕСПЧ возможен не только пересмотр Тверским судом ранее проигранных дел, но и положительные решения по новым искам (в том числе и для тех, кто ранее не судился).
