Abstract

This article considers the ongoing challenges presented by the continued absence of effective investigations into serious human rights violations already established by the ECtHR in Russia and the ongoing absence of accountability for the perpetrators, particularly in Chechnya. In this context the author explores the significance of the ECtHR's application of Art. 46 in the Abuyeva v Russia decision and the hope that the possibility of justice for the victims of the attack at Katyr-Yurt in February 2000 is still within reach.
