This note analyzes the functioning of the Russian judiciary on the basis of the European Court of Human Rights’ judgments in the cases of OAO Neftianaia Kompaniia Iukos and three of the company’s former leading executives, Mikhail Borisovich Khodorkovskii, Platon Leonidovich Lebedev and the late Vasilii Aleksanian. The analysis turns to the breaches by the Russian state of Articles 5 (right to liberty and security), 6 (right to a fair trial) and 18 (permissible restrictions to the rights guaranteed) of the 1950 European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, as established by the Court in the aforementioned cases, and the role of the Russian judiciary therein. In light of the fundamental flaws and structural nature characterizing the violations found, the conclusion is reached that the Russian judiciary (still) appears not to be entirely free from undue influence by the other branches of government.

This volume supplements the first two volumes of A Systematic Guide to the Case-Law of the European Court of Human Rights which appeared in late 1996. It covers the years 1995 and 1996, and follows the same system as the previous volumes. Thus this volume, together with Volumes I and II, offers a compilation of relevant passages of all the Court's judgments from 1960 up to and including 1996, arranged according to the Articles of the Convention and its Protocols. The Guide will enable its users to find all the rulings of the Court which may be relevant to a given problem, and will reduce considerably the time and effort needed for research. It will continue to be updated at regular intervals.

This collection contains the most important separate opinions of Judge Loukis Loucaides, member of the European Court of Human Rights from 1998 until 2008. It collates a decade of disagreement with the Court's judgments by a judge with strong moral convictions about the interpretation of the Convention. His opinions were largely inspired by the legal principles he was dedicated to serving. Separate opinions offer valuable insight into different trends and schools of thought that inevitably influence the development of the Court’s case-law. Always eager, as he liked to say, “to call a spade a spade”. Judge Loucaides' opinions reflect his unfettered commitment to human rights and make for interesting reading.
