ECHR to examine an application concerning the shooting of civilians in 2010

The application Tatayev and others vs the Russian Federation was submitted to the ECHR in 2015 with the help of Justice Initiative. “Wild garlic picking in these districts is a difficult and dangerous job but people had no choice but to take up this occupation for lack of any other livelihood”, said lawyer Tanzila Arsamakova, who works with Justice Initiative. “The applicants and their relatives who were killed all had the necessary permits from the village administration to collect wild garlic in this location. They had been engaged in this work for some time now. The authorities simply had to have known that around 100 civilians were in the forest, but they nonetheless gave the order to fire indiscriminately on the forest from machine guns and grenade launchers”.

Saida Khalikova was sentenced by the Moscow district military court in 2015 to five years in a general-regime prison colony. She has been in detention since December 2014. During the investigation, she and her mother Raziyat Isambekova came under pressure from Investigative Committee officials.  Saida has suffered from a blood disorder for many years now.

Two years have passed since domestic violence victim Maryem Aliyeva’s disappearance

Mukharbek Yevloyev repeatedly threatened Yelizaveta Aliyeva and demanded that she withdraw her complaint to the police about Maryem’s disappearance. In this situation, Yelizaveta was forced to leave Ingushetia together with her children, but she continues the search for Maryem.  “The police ignored all of the complaints about domestic violence made by Maryem and Yelizaveta Aliyeva and opened no criminal case against Mukharbek Yevloyev”, said Olga Gnezdilova.
