Zarema Musaeva convoyed to colony

Zarema Musaeva has been sent to the settlement colony located in the town of Argun. Her advocates are preparing documents for her conditional early relief (CER), the project "Support for Political Prisoners. Memorial" has reported in its Telegram channel.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on September 12, the Supreme Court (SC) of Chechnya reduced Musaeva's colony down to five years and replaced a general security with a settlement colony. Human rights defenders and advocates have noted that Musaeva now has the right to recalculate the term she had served at the SIZO (pre-trial prison), as well as to apply for the CER.

Let us remind you that on January 20, 2022, Chechen law enforcers took Zarema Musaeva (the wife of Saidi Yangulbaev, a former Russian federal judge) away from her apartment in Nizhny Novgorod. She was accused of assaulting a policeman.

    The bills that intend to ban wearing religious clothing, including niqabs, in public places are causing a split in the society, which is especially negative amid the special military operation (SMO) in Ukraine. Religious clothes are not widespread in the country, this issue is not relevant, therefore the bills to ban them will not be adopted, lawyers believe.
