Kidnapped Ingush in Egypt Subjected to Severe Torture

According to Masrawy, a news agency in Egypt, with the reference to the bureau of Amnesty International in Alexandria city of Egypt, Ibragim Zautdinovich Mankiev are subjecting to severe torture.

Earlier we had reported the kidnapping case of Ibragim Zautdinovich Mankiev, 32 years old, in Egypt. But later Egypt police had declared that Ibragim wasn’t kidnapped, he was held by Egypt State Security Investigations (SSI) officers in the northern coastal city of Alexandria, and he is in under inquiry.

Human rights defenders had immediately published the statements about Ibragim Mankiev is at risk of torture and ill-treatment, and may be at risk of forcible return to Russia. And yesterday Amnesty International reported that their concerns are came true. Since his detention, Ibragim is objecting to various forms of torture including electric shocks and dousing with cold water everyday.

Amnest International believes that Ibragim is probably at an SSI detention facility in the area of Karmuz in Alexandria. Russian Vice Council confirmed that Ibragim was still detained, but that no one was allowed to see him.

Amnesty International urged the authorities to disclose Ibragim Zautdinovich Mankiev’s whereabouts immediately, and give him access to lawyers of his choice, urged consular services, his family and any medical attention he may require; the authorities to ensure that he will not be tortured or otherwise ill-treated; called on the authorities to release Ibragim Zautdinovich Mankiev immediately and unconditionally, unless he is promptly charged with a recognizably criminal offence and given a fair trial in line with international standards; urged the Egypt Ministry of the Interior not to forcibly return Ibragim Zautdinovich Mankiev or any other Caucassians, who would be at risk of torture or other ill-treatment if returned to Russia.

Let’s remind you, in June 2009 at least six Chechen were forcibly deported from Egypt -including Maskhud Abdullaev-, following a wave of arrests in late May 2009 of foreign Moslem students.
