Two years after ECtHR judgment, Supreme Court upholds new conviction of torture victim

Two years after ECtHR judgment, Supreme Court upholds new conviction of torture victim

The Russian Supreme Court has upheld the conviction of Timur Tangiyev following his re-trial before the Supreme Court of Chechnya, which was plagued with procedural and other irregularities, said “Russian Justice Initiative”. The re-trial was ordered on 25 December 2013 by the Russian Supreme Court, after quashing Tangiyev’s conviction of a raft of serious crimes following a finding by the European Court of Human Rights that Mr Tangiyev’s trial and resulting conviction had been unfair because of its reliance on evidence obtained under torture. By the time Mr Tangiyev’s case reached the Presidium of the Supreme Court in 2013, he had served ten years out of his 22-year sentence.
