Chechnya’s Minister of Youth Isa Ibragimov has acquitted an ex-mayor of Grozny Islam Kadyrov (a relative of a head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov) who used to beat and torture with a stun gun women suspected of swindling.

“Torturing with a stun gun is even not enough for swindlers,” Ibragimov wrote on his Instagram page. The 27-year-old official commented a live program with Islam Kadyrov hosted by Chingiz Akhmadov, a correspondent of Grozny Chechen State TV and Radio Company. During the program, the former mayor apologized for his acts and clarified he had only wanted to intimidate the detainees in order for them to stop. He also referred to the aftermath of operations he had gone through following road accidents.
