The NN Committee Against Torture has received official documents from the Prosecutor’s Office of the OGV(s) in the Chechen Republic (p.1p.2) and the Chechen Regional Prosecutor’s Office (p.1p.2) which state that a number of complaints against unlawful actions and inaction of prosecution officials, compiled by lawyers of the Chechen Office of the Committee Kilab Ezhiev and Khuseyn Khasbulatov in the framework of unofficial (public) investigations, have been examined and sustained. In particular, in the nearest future several officials from the Prosecutor’s Office of the OGV(s) and the Regional Prosecutor’s Office will be subjected to internal examinations as to observance of criminal procedure laws.    

    We need to mention that this is not a singular case when dishonest prosecution officials from Chechnya attract close attention and became subjects of examinations on the part of higher prosecution officials owing to effective work of the Chechen Office of the Committee.
