Baulin v. Russian Federation

Reference: CCPR/C/76/D/771/1997

Decision Year: 2002-10-31

Information Source: LALIT and the Human Rights Committee’s follow-up reports

According to the Victim or his/her Counsel:

07/2013 No implementation. The State party has failed to specify any practical measures that would effectively guarantee the rights of the authors, to be able to stand as candidate in any future election.
04/2014 At a press conference held on 25/04/2014, the Prime Minister affirmed that there would be no electoral reform before the next general election.  The implementation of the Consultation paper remains hypothetical, and can hardly be considered as a measure providing them with an effective remedy.
