Rule 9 (2) submission to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe: “Rostomashvili Group of Cases”

France, the Europe Palace in Strasbourg in Bas Rhin

International Partnership for Human Rights (IPHR) and Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association (GYLA) hereby submitted a communication to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe regarding the proceedings in Rostomashvili v. Georgia, Application No. 13185/07, and its seven repetitive cases (the “Rostomashvili Group of Cases”).

This submission demonstrates that Georgia, two years after the final judgment in Rostomashvili, has failed to undertake any meaningful steps towards implementation of the judgment or the remedying of the major structural problems in Georgia’s judicial system that it revealed.

The Committee of Ministers should thus urge Georgia to provide an action plan (which the respondent state was expected to provide within six months, at the latest, of the judgment becoming final) and increase its emphasis on the Rostomashvili Group of Cases by examining it under enhanced supervision.
