Today several media reported, referring to the press-service of the Chief Directorate of the Ministry of the Interior of Russia for the Stavropol Territory that Murad Amriyev is removed from the federal wanted list. This information was officially confirmed by Deputy Head of the Department of Information and Public Relations of the regional Ministry of the Interior Anna Anisimova in a conversation with Chairman of the Committee for the Prevention of Torture Igor Kalyapin. However, despite these reports, Murad Amriyev is still in the “Wanted” database as a person wanted in relation to the criminal case – anyone can check that at the official website of the Ministry of the Interior of Russia.

Today colleagues from press-service of the Department of the Ministry of the Interior of Russia for Pyatigorsk applied to the Committee for the Prevention of Torture asking to publish the following information, related to the events  that happened on 3 July:

“On 3 July 2017 the police control room of the Department of the Ministry of the Interior of Russia for Pyatigorsk received a call stating that some suspicious people were noticed in one of the apartments. District police officer was sent to this place, where he found two men. After checking their personal data, it was revealed that one of them is included in the federal wanted list at the initiative of the law-enforcement bodies of the neighboring region. This data was re-checked, after that it became known that this person was removed from the federal wanted list. Regarding this incident, a check is being performed as provided for in Articles 144-145 of the Criminal Procedural Code of the RF”.

We gladly fulfill this request; however, we consider it our duty to inform that Murad Amriyev in question and who, according to the information of two press-services has been removed from the federal wanted list, is still featured in this list. This information can be easily checked by anyone by introducing the necessary data to the search engine at the official web site of the Ministry of the Intetior of Russia .
