Yukos to Get its Day in Court Against Russia

Looks like the thieves in the biggest heist in modern history might be made to be held accountable.  From Reuters:

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that a case brought against Russia by shareholders in collapsed oil firm YUKOS is admissible and will be examined, a spokesman said on Thursday. (…)

The company’s former chief financial officer, Bruce Misamore, welcomed the decision in which he said the court had ruled that “aspects of the complaint” were admissible.

“The decision by the European Court of Human Rights to investigate elements of our claim is excellent news for all of YUKOS Oil Company’s stakeholders,” he said.

“This is an important step towards the vindication of the company’s belief in the rule of law — something it never secured in Russia,” he said.
