Russia slams the door on prominent European Human Rights NGO

     It is true, Global human rights really are for everyone. When you have a powerful human rights NGO like the "Russian Justice Initiative" working for the people of Russia, it should make the world feel great!!  The RJI, according to the Turkish reporting agency, has won 109 cases worth 10 million Euros in favor of human rights abuse victims!

   They also have over 200 cases pending in the European Court of Human Rights. Unfortunately, The Russian administration is denying the NGO registration-in some important Caucasus citing lack of timeliness of filing. Hopefully, this powerful Human Rights NGO will find a way to get there registration completed and ensure that global human rights are for everyone!
