Ibragimov v. Slovakia, Chentiev v. Slovakia, (51946/08, 21022/08)
Anzor Chentiev and Ali Ibragimov are accused of having participated in the killing of two agents of the Ministry of Interior Affairs in Grozny in June 2001. The statements forming the basis for the allegations against them were allegedly extracted under torture. Chentiev and Ibragimov later left Russia and unsuccessfully applied for asylum in Slovakia. Russian authorities have since requested their extradition to Russia. The Constitutional Court of Slovakia in 2008 and 2009 upheld Supreme Court decisions to extradite the two men. Chentiev and Ibragimov claim that their extradition would amount to a breach of their rights under the European Convention as they risk being tortured and ill-treated in Russia.
