No Justice for Business in Russia

Date: June 23, 2009
Author: Jason Bush
QUOTE: Council of Europe report alleges that Russia's justice system is characterized by "pressure on judges," frequent "intimidation and reprisals" against defense lawyers, "irregularities in the investigative process," and "political interference in the criminal justice process"...the findings are likely to influence other countries' perceptions of Russia's legal system. And that is likely to reinforce increasingly negative opinions of Russia's legal climate among international investors.
