Chechen Residents Fear and They are Right!

The decision of the leadership of the HRC “Memorial” to suspend the work of the Centre in Chechnya is ambiguously treated in the country. And they are right to have fear, because six or seven people were kidnapped in Chechnya after the murder of Natalya Estemirova.

Some people find it reasonable, while others express fear that suspension of the human rights organization will untie hands of so-called power agents, who have recently sharply strengthened their punitive and repressive actions.

A local resident named Malika, who also knew Natalya Estemirova, Notes that the majority of those who suffered from Militaries and militiamen in the Chechnya preferred to address the “Memorial” for help. “And it was Natalya Estemirova who dealt with the majority of complaints and applications. Let her friends and colleagues not take offence, but it seems to me that after her death the ‘ Memorial ‘ will not work same actively. Not because they got frightened or would not like to do what they did. Just because there are no more such persons like Natalya,” said Malika. “And it was Natalya Estemirova who dealt with the majority of complaints and Applications.

On the other it seems the local residents are right, because after the murder of Natalya Estemirova, six or seven local residents were kidnapped and illegeally detained  in Chechnya. The data obtained by Memorial.
