STRASBOURG, June 22 (RIA Novosti, Kristina Rodrigues) - PACE co-rapporteur on Russia Rudolf Bindig said he intended to raise the issue of human rights in Chechnya in his report at a PACE session Wednesday.

The Parliamentary Assembly will consider a report on the fulfillment of Russia's obligations to the Council of Europe. The 120-page report was drafted by members of the PACE monitoring committee David Atkinson (UK) and Bindig. Members will vote on the report following its presentation.

"The situation with human rights situation in Chechnya is complicated," Bindig said. "We have to raise this issue in the report on the monitoring of Russia's obligations to the Council of Europe."

According to Bindig, the major problems are caused by drawbacks in investigations into human rights violations and in taking relevant cases to court.
