Dmitry Medvedev had a meeting with Human Rights Ombudsman Vladimir Lukin

May 26, 2010, Gorki, Moscow Region

The President and Ombudsman discussed the observance of labour rights of employees given the crisis generated problems.

According to Mr Lukin, the number of complaints received by the Ombudsman from citizens is growing. The complaints result from the situation on the job market, breaches in personal civil rights and unsatisfactory performance by courts.

In addition, the Ombudsman emphasised problems relating to the situation at pre-trial facilities where individuals suspected or accused of crimes are held.

Dmitry Medvedev noted that the appropriate ministries are drafting amendments to the respective laws.

The Human Rights Ombudsman presented his 2009 report to the President.
