Estonia's Parliament Does Not Think It Proper To Translate Estonian Laws Into Russian

On Tuesday, Estonia's parliament for the second time voted down the opposition Centrist Party-sponsored bill aimed at amending the law on Riigi Teataja legal bulletin. The party moved that the bulletin's electronic version be translated into Russian. The ruling coalition, however, sensed a threat of bilingualism in the bill. Also on Tuesday, parliament passed in a first reading amendments to the language law which allow public servants, notaries, bailiffs demand citizens who do not speak Estonian invite an interpreter, with his/her services to be paid by the latter. "The authorities have devised another way of squeezing money," Mikhail Stalnukhin of the Centrist Party told RIA Novosti. The above law may enter into force as early as beginning February 1.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
