    MOSCOW, January 27 (RIA Novosti) - Over 16,000 complaints by Russian nationals have been submitted to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg since May 5, 1998, but only seven out of them have been upheld, said Vyacheslav Lebedev, Russia's Supreme Court Chairman, speaking at a joint seminar of chairpersons of Federation member countries' courts and military courts.

    Lebedev said the main grounds for complaints were issues connected with execution of court decisions, violation of the procedure and terms of looking into criminal cases, complaints relating to court verdicts, as well as issues of compensation payments.

    In his turn, Pavel Laptev, Russia's plenipotentiary in the European Court of Human Rights, who spoke at the seminar, noted high stability of Russian justice.
