Lawyers from Justice Initiative sent an application to the ECHR for violations by the authorities of articles 2, 3, and 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights (right to life, prohibition of torture, and prohibition of discrimination) in connection with the police’s refusal to investigate Marem Aliyeva’s complaints about beatings by her husband, and the lack of an effective investigation into Marem’s murder.

Ingushetia Supreme Court reviews sentence of abductors of Yelizaveta Aliyeva

The investigation report states that Mukharbek Yevloyev abducted Yelizaveta Aliyeva from her home on July 9, 2015. He was looking for Aliyeva’s sister, Marem. Together with five armed men, he broke into Yelizaveta Aliyeva’s house, demanding to know where his wife was. Aliyeva and her husband were bundled into a car and driven towards the city dump in Nazran. Neighbours called the police and this saved Aliyeva, as she was able to escape from the car when the abductors stopped to hide from the police patrol.
