2 Information on national selection procedure for the position of a judge of European Court of Human Rights

By letter dated 26 May 2020, the Secretary General of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe notified the authorities of the Russian Federation about the need to conduct a national procedure for the selection of candidates for the position of a judge of the European Court of Human Rights in respect of the Russian Federation in connection with the expiration of the powers of an acting judge in respect of the Russian Federation in 2022.

On 16 August 2020, the President of the Russian Federation instructed the Ministry of Justice, in co-operation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to organise the necessary procedure of the selection of candidates for the position of judge of the European Court of Human Rights in respect of the Russian Federation.

In pursuance of this order, the Ministry of Justice of Russian Federation formed a Competition Commission for the selection of candidates for the position of a judge of the European Court of Human Rights, to which, in accordance with the resolutions and recommendations of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, as well as the Guidelines of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, representatives of state authorities, professional, judicial and scientific communities, as well as representatives of public organisations were invited.

The Competition Commission included 3 representatives from the Russian Ministry of Justice; 2 representatives from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs; a representative from the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation; a representative from the Higher Qualification Collegium of Judges; a representative from the Council of Judges of the Russian Federation; Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation; a representative from the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation; a representative from the All-Russian public organisation "Association of Russian Lawyers"; a representative from the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law under the Government of the Russian Federation. The Chairman of the Commission was the Minister of Justice of the Russian Federation.

The announcement of a competition for the position of a judge of the European Court of Human Rights in respect of the Russian Federation was published on 4 September 2020 on the official website of the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation, on the portal "Regulatory Legal Acts in the Russian Federation", as well as on the website and in the printed version of "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" (official source of publication of regulatory legal acts of the Russian Federation).

The published information announcement contained a list of the requirements of the Council of Europe for the respective candidates, as well as the description of the procedure.

According to the published conditions, the competition was open and anyone could take part in it by submitting, by 5 October 2020, the documents specified in the announcement that would confirm that the applicants had the necessary qualifications, namely:

  • a filled model CV approved by Resolution 1646 of the Parliamentary Assembly, in Russian and one of the working languages of the Council of Europe;
  • documents confirming that candidates have education, professional experience, awards (diplomas, work record book, certificates, etc.).

As of 6 October 2020, the total number of applications received by the Commission was 34.

On 21 October 2020, the first meeting of the Competition Commission was held, during which an initial check of the documents submitted by candidates was carried out. Based on its results, the Competition Commission decided to refuse admission to the further stages of the competition for 7 candidates (6 persons indicated in the questionnaire that they did not possess any knowledge of the second working language of the Council of Europe, 1 person due to their age, if elected, would be over 65). With regard to 24 candidates, it was decided to send them to the assessment of the knowledge of the working languages of the Council of Europe. With regard to 3 candidates, it was decided to exempt them from testing due to their work (at the moment of the competition) in the structures of the Council of Europe, which was a confirmation of their sufficient knowledge of working languages.

Linguistic testing was organised on the basis of MGIMO of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, a specialised scientific and educational institution. The assessment of the level of proficiency in language knowledge was conducted by 6 highly qualified teachers (three for each of the languages). The testing was carried out in pre-formed groups over three days from October 28 to 30, 2020 and consisted of written and oral parts. Based on the results of the assessment of each test taker, the teachers filled in forms with a detailed description of the abilities of each of the candidates. Upon completion of this stage, all assessment materials were transferred to the Competition Commission.

On 19 November 2020, the second meeting of the Competition Commission was held, during which, taking into account the feedback of MGIMO experts, 8 candidates were denied further participation in the competition procedures due to their insufficient level of proficiency in the official languages of the Council of Europe. The remaining 18 candidates underwent a personal interview with the Competition Commission, on various subjects such as knowledge of the national legal system, the case-law of the European Court of Human Rights and the activities of the Council of Europe.

Based on the results of the voting by the members of the Competition Commission, a list of six candidates that met the requirements established by the Resolutions and Recommendations of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe the most, was determined. The list of selected applicants was published on the website of the Ministry of Justice of Russia on 23 November 2020 and submitted to the President of the Russian Federation for the selection and approval of the final list of three candidates nominated by the Russian Federation to the Advisory Panel of Experts on Candidates for Election as Judge of the European Court of Human Rights and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

The Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation and national courts did not receive any complaints from participants in the relevant competitive procedures.

The following 3 candidates were nominated by the Russian Federation:

  • LOBOV Mikhail Borisovich,
  • PAVLOVA Natalia Vladimirovna.
