The British Government does not hold this information as the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers is the body responsible for supervising Member States’ implementation of the European Court of Human Rights’ judgments, including on payment of just satisfaction. The UK plays an active role in the Committee of Ministers, and has regularly used this forum to press Russia to comply with Court rulings, in line with its international human rights obligations.
