Chechen residents report mass detention of their relatives by police without explanation
According to them, the people detained are tortured.
Local residents of Borozdinovskaya village, the Shchelkovsky district of Chechnya, requested the support of journalists after six men were detained without explanation. As reported by Kavkazsky Uzel, fellow villagers and relatives still do not know on what grounds they were taken to the police; they are not allowed to see the detainees.
According to the locals, the detention took place on July 12. At about 11 o'clock in the evening, the policemen took away a village local, a Dagestani named Kurban, in an unknown direction. After that, five more people were detained.
The relatives figured out that five men were taken to the police department in the Shchelkovsky district; another man was taken to the department of Gudermes. In addition, in an interview with the local publication Novoe Delo, family members of the detainees told that some of the persons detained contacted them, saying that they did not know of what they were suspected and that they were being tortured.
In this connection, Kavkazsky Uzel journalists have contacted a representative of the Republic’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, who told that all detentions in the republic happen for a reason. “If the detainees are guilty, they will be imprisoned, and if not, they will be released,” the publication’s interlocutor said.
The decision on the undesirability of one of the most influential thieves in law Tariel Oniani’s (Mulukhov) stay in Russia after his release next year was taken on August 6 by Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev. After Oniani’s release, the MIA explained, he will be expelled from Russia for life.
The gray cardinal of Karachay-Cherkessia (KChR), Senator Rauf Arashukov used opportunities to influence the Cherkessian community of the region, especially youth. He was nominated to the post of Prime-Minister of the republic. However, no one shared his political wishes and methods of struggle. According to the sources of The CrimeRussia, the Senator masterminded the murder of youth movement leader Aslan Zhukov in 2010. Many people knew about, the witnesses of a high-profile crime testified against him. But the political weight and ties terminated the case. And even the self-proclaimed killer was unable to prove his guilt in court. However, as it became known the other day, six years after his acquittal, he gave himself up once again.
