Russia upper house ratified Europe rights court reform protocol
Sarah Steers at 12:00 AM ET

On January 27, 2010, Russia's Federation Council (the upper house of its Parliament) voted to approve Protocol 14, which reformed the European Convention of Human Rights [PDF]. The reforms included changes designed to increase efficiency at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). Concerns that the bill was politically motivated had delayed its passage. Russia was the last member of the Council of Europe to ratify the protocol.
