Cases were opened against two police officers of the Leninsky district police department in Grozny
Cases were opened against two police officers of the Leninsky district police department in Grozny. They are accused of torturing the detainees, human rights commissioner in Chechnya Nurdi Nukhazhiyev told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. “These policemen used illegal methods to get information they were interested in from the detainees. Unfortunately such cases occur, and the law enforcement agencies are fighting against them. But, to my mind, it is done not quite effectively. We receive quite many calls about this issue, but the prosecutor’s office opened only four cases for torturing the detainees,” the ombudsman emphasized. According to him, 68 illegal detention cases of Chechen citizens were exposed this year alone. Nukhazhiyev noted that such problem as abductions is being solved in Chechnya recently. For ten months of this year 55 kidnappings cases were registered, and 18 of them were solved. “For comparison, 155 Chechen citizens were kidnapped last year,” he pointed out. “As practice shows, blood feud and score-settling are becoming more and more frequent motives of kidnappings. People were earlier abducted with the aim to get a ransom,” the ombudsman remarked. Commenting on the position and the statistics the Chechen human rights organisations cite on this kind of crime, Nukhazhiyev noted, “Some non-governmental organisations are acting according to the proved stereotypes, do not notice or do not want to notice changes for the better in the solution to this serious problem.”
