Fourteen people have been abducted in Chechnya this year
Fourteen people have been abducted in Chechnya this year, Chechen President Alu Alkhanov said. "Regrettably, the problem of kidnapping has not been fully resolved, but registered abductions have decreased by many times. Last year, 70 people were kidnapped in the same period," Alkhanov said at a meeting with a delegation of the office of the UN high commissioner for refugees on Monday. "According to statistics, the crime rate in Chechnya is lower than the Russian average," he noted. Earlier, Chechen Prime Minister Ramzan Kadyrov called abductions one of the most serious problems in the republic. But those who fled to highlands or went abroad under fake passports are listed as kidnapped, too. "Those who disappeared in actual fact, are also among them, and it is for their search that all the resources will be used," Kadyrov said. Law-enforcement bodies of the republic said 213 people were kidnapped in 2004. Some half of the victims were actually kidnapped before 2004, but the disappearances were reported to police much later.
