ECHR compels Russia to pay €37.000 to convicted of servicemen's killing
According to the convicts, they faced pressure and were forced to plead guilty of participation in an illegal armed group in Grozny.
The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) found violations of the rights of Denis Abdulkadyrov and Albek Dakhtarov, sentenced to 25 years’ imprisonment for the murder of several people, including police and military, in Russia in 2004, and decided to pay each of them €37 thousand (more than 2.6 million rubles) as compensation. The corresponding decision is published on the ECHR website.
It states that Abdulkadyrov and Dakhtarov were detained in Grozny in September 2002; the necessary reports were drawn up five days after the detention. According to the convicted, all this time police exerted pressure, and as a result, they were forced to plead guilty of participation in an illegal armed group in Grozny and the murder of several people.
They said that they were beaten with rubber batons, policemen electrocuted them and threatened with rape.
Abdulkadyrov demanded compensation in the amount of €855 thousand, and Dakhtarov - €342 thousand. Russia, in turn, called the amounts requested unreasonable.
ECHR acknowledged that the convicts were ill-treated in police custody, and the investigation of the criminal case against them was unfair. The court also found that Abdulkadyrov and Dakhtarov were tortured. Russia is obliged to pay €37 thousand as compensation for moral damage and €4 thousand for expenses per person.
