Between 3rd – 9th October 2010, Paul Richmond trained 40 Russian lawyers in Moscow and St. Petersburg on the law and practice of monitoring criminal trials for compliance with international fair trial standards. The training workshops were organised by the International Commission of Jurists following the recent publication of its practitioner text entitled “Trial Observation Manual for Criminal Proceedings”, which Paul co-authored. Paul is scheduled to conduct further trial observation training courses in Russia in early 2011.
