The current committee meeting in Strasbourg is focused on the examining of the fulfillment of the rulings by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR). According to the resolution, the committee plans to return to reviewing the case in December.
Moscow's court of arbitration declared Yukos bankrupt in 2006. State-run Rosneft subsequently purchased about 80 percent of the company's assets.
In 2014, the ECtHR instructed Russia to pay former Yukos investors nearly 1.9 billion euro ($2.16 billion at the current exchange rate) for violating their right to judicial relief and a fair trial. The ECtHR board rejected an appeal by the Russian Justice Ministry, which stated the ECHR decision was neither fair nor impartial.
