The President of the Law Society wrote to the Committee of Ministers at the Council of Europe regarding the judgment in Oleksandr Volkov v. Ukraine.

In the letter the Law Society calls upon the Committee of Ministers to recognise the non compliance of the binding judgment by the Ukraine, and the consequent infringement to both the independence and impartiality of the judiciary within the Ukraine.

The letter has been sent in advance of the next CoM meeting in September.
