MMA fighter Murad Amriev managed to leave Pyatigorsk apartment before dozen police officers arrived
The world champion in mixed martial arts lived in an apartment of Konstantin Gusev, the member of the Committee Against Torture.
MMA fighter Murad Amriev left the apartment in Pyatigorsk an hour before a group of policemen arrived there. The athlete went on vacation to Pyatigorsk, after he had received a decision on the termination of the criminal case against him, reported Mediazona.
In Pyatigorsk, Amriev lived in the apartment of the Committee Against Torture member, Konstantin Gusev. In the evening of July 3, a district police officer came there to check documents on a call from his neighbors. After that, the fighter decided to leave Pyatigorsk. An hour later after his departure, about a dozen policemen with automatic weapons and body armor showed up in the apartment. They searched the flat and demanded that Gusev should tell them where Amriev was.
After checking the human rights activist’s documents, the policemen left, but the district police officer returned. He said that such a situation is quite common practice for a "call from neighbors". He added that Amriev is on the federal wanted list.
Amriev’s lawyer sent a complaint to the police of Grozny with the requirement to exclude the athlete from the list. He was shown a letter, which read that documents for Amriev’s removal from the federal search were sent on June 14. The Committee Against Torture sent an appeal to Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev on the issue.
