Information about the measures to comply with the judgment in the case
Dunayev against Russian Federation
This case concerns the violation of the applicant's right of access to a court on account of the Moscow City Court's refusal, in 2001, to accept his written appeal submissions for examination in civil proceedings without giving any plausible reason or issuing any formal decision to that effect (violation of Article 6, paragraph 1).
I. Payment of just satisfaction and individual measures
a) Details of just satisfaction
Name and application number
Costs and expenses
b) Other individual measures
The applicant's request for supervisory review of the appeal decision at the origin of the violation found was refused as lodged out of time, as was his request to restore the time-limit. The applicant did not avail himself of the possibility to request a review of his case on account of newly discovered circumstances within three months of the date when the European Court's judgment became final. No further individual measures appear to be required.
II. General measures
The judgment was published, and its summary in Russian was disseminated among the courts, the prosecutors and other institutions. Since this case concerned a single incident of judicial malpractice, these general measures will be sufficient to prevent future violations and no other general measures are thus required.
III. Conclusions of the respondent State
The government considers that no individual measure is required in this case, apart from the payment of the just satisfaction, and that the general measures adopted will prevent similar violations. The Russian Federation has therefore complied with its obligations under Article 46, paragraph 1, of the Convention.
