No rehab for Royal Family
« on: February 20, 2006, 06:05:05 PM »
Here is the article:

Prosecutor's office refuses to rehabilitate royal family
MOSCOW. Feb 20 (Interfax) - The Russian Prosecutor's Office has refused to recognize last Russian tsar Nicholas II and his family, killed by a Bolshevik firing squad in 1918, as victims of political repression, citing a lack of evidence. It also refused to rehabilitate the royal family.

Late in 2005, Grand Duchess Maria, who claims to head what is known as the Romanov imperial house of Russia, asked the Prosecutor General's Office to recognize Nicholas and his family as victims of political repression and to restore the family.

"There is no authentic evidence of the existence of any official decisions by judiciary or non-judiciary authorities that politically motivated repression was exercised against [Nicholas and his family], evidence that is required by current rehabilitation legislation. This prevents us from recognizing [the royal family] as victims of political repression and from issuing a decision on their rehabilitation," the Prosecutor General's Office said in a letter.

Now I wonder just how exactly would they explain the murder of the IF if they had to? Was it only a terrible accident?

It is not so much the lack of evidence, but the lack of any documents that specifically state the decision that the Imperial Family are to be shot.

Furthermore, the Court asserted that only those who were repressed or their direct relatives who are aggrieved can make a claim for political repression. There is, according to the Court, no one who has that kind of legal standing today.

Therefore in the absence of a formal declaration by any soviet court of that day, there can be no rehabilitation.

There is a technical legalism involved here that has nothing to do with the moral and ethical issues.

Not unexpected, Mariya Vladimirovna  has submitted an appeal to the Prosecutor General's office a few days ago.

Maybe there's still resentment against Nicholas II and Alexandra?

Hi nene,

The Prosecutor's Office decision can only make their decision based on any documentary evidence before them stating that the Imperial Family are to be shot or killed by some other means.

There is no such document.

The decision can not, and can not be seen to be influenced by emotive issues.

Regards,

Margarita

Thanks for the explanation. I just hope that someday there will be rehab for the children at least, as they definitely didn't do anything wrong. Their only crime was that they were born Romanovs.

Take care.

I am sure if a large amount of money changes hands the Appeal will go thru.
