On 16 June 2007, in settlement Khankala the Grozny Garrison Court Martial held a public hearing of the complaint of the NN Committee Against Torture against the violation, committed by Mr. R.P. Tarshis, a deputy military prosecutor of military unit no.20119. He had not advised of the decision he had adopted, and therefore had impaired the victim’s rights. Mr. R.V. Prytkov, a judge of the Grozny Garrison Court Martial, having examined the complaint of lawyer S.A. Baskhanov who was representing victim Ayzan Amsadova, acknowledged that the inaction of lieutenant colonel of justice R.P. Tarshis, a deputy military prosecutor of military unit no.20119, had been unlawful.

    Lawyers of the Chechen Office of the NN Committee Against Torture repeatedly come across violations of law by prosecution officials. From now on, after every similar decision of a court, we will insist on bringing the infringers to liability!
