EGMR: Kasymakhunov and Saybatalov v. Russia (nos. 26261/05 and 26377/06)

The applicants, Yusup Kasymakhunov, an Uzbek national, and Marat Saybatalov, a Russian national, were born in 1964 and 1972 respectively. They were both convicted by the Russian courts, in November 2004 and October 2005 respectively, for their membership of the radical Islamic organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami, and sentenced to seven years and four months’ and five years and six months’ imprisonment respectively. Relying in particular on Article 7 (no punishment without law), they complained that the Russian Supreme Court’s decision banning the activities of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Russia had not been officially published and that the legal provisions on the basis of which they had been convicted had therefore been not foreseeable in their application.

  • No violation of Article 7 (in respect of Mr Kasymakhunov)
  • Violation of Article 7 (in respect of Mr Saybatalov)

Just satisfaction: no claim submitted by Mr Saybatalov.
