ECtHR awards compensation to natives of Ingushetia and Dagestan

The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) in Strasbourg awarded compensation to Magomed Abadiev, a convicted resident of Ingushetia, and Dalgat Gamzatov, a resident of Dagestan, who were subjected to inhumane treatment while being transferred to a penal colony.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that in 2018, Magomed Abadiev was sentenced to 15 years of imprisonment on the charges of involvement in the “Islamic State” (a terrorist organization, banned in Russia by the court, – note of the “Caucasian Knot”) and possession of weapons. Law enforcers called Magomed Abadiev “a confidant of one of the leaders of the armed underground.”

The ECtHR recognized a violation of the rights of 40-year-old Magomed Abadiev during his transfer to the penal colony, the “Kavkaz.Realii”* reports. He complained of overcrowding in a cell, insufficient sleeping space, limited access to toilets, and lack of fresh air.

The ECtHR awarded Magomed Abadiev compensation of 1000 euros. Dalgat Gamzatov from Dagestan, who reported violations during transportation to a penal colony in 2019, was awarded the same compensation. He was sentenced to five years of imprisonment in a case on drug trafficking.

The “Caucasian Knot” has also reported that on October 26, the ECtHR recognized a violation of the rights of Islam Yandiev, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in a case on a terror act at Domodedovo airport, and awarded him compensation of 1000 euros.
