The Influences of Kadirov’s Threats Continue

After the public threats of national traitor Ramzan Kadirov against human rights defenders, first reactions were appeard. Two representatives of puppet regime in the State Council of the Russian Federation were agree with puppet Kadirov; The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) condemned the statements of Kadirov.

We have published a news about Kadirov’s describes against rights defenders especially for Human Rights Center “Memorial” as “enemies of the people, the law and the state”. The days after of puppet Kadirov’s words first support for Kadirov came from his brownnosers. Their comments once agains reveals that human rights activists are right on their fears.

A Chechen senator Ziyab Sabsabi, who is the representative in the State Council of the Russian Federation for puppet regime in Chechnya, said “Memorial”s work was of “no use” in Chechnya because the human rights situation had stabilized. Toadeating Sabsabi defended Kadirov, saying he must have had “serious reasons” to describe “Memorial” activists as enemies in a local television interview on July 3.

Another puppet Chechen senator Aslanbek Aslakhanov, said “Memorial” activists were “telling a truth that sometimes damaged themselves when it would be better to keep silent and strike a compromise”.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE)’s Legal Affairs and Human Rights Committee rapporteur on the North Caucasus, Dick Marty, called the words of the puppet Kadirov “unacceptable and unworthy”. Marty said “such words, similar to those uttered by Kadirov against Natalya Estemirova, a member of Memorial’s staff subsequently murdered last summer, are barely disguised threats”. The PACE official called on Russia “to ask the puppet Chechen authorities to ensure the protection of human rights defenders and further to intensify dialogue with civil society, following the example of President Dmitry Medvedyev’s meeting with representatives of NGOs in May”.

On the other hand “Memorial” called Kadirov’s remarks “a direct and clear-cut threat”. Head of “Memorial” head Oleg Orlov said he did not rule out the possibility that “Memorial” might suspend its work in Chechnya for a second time. The group first suspended its work in Chechnya last year after the still-unsolved killing of its activist Natalya Estemirova on July 15.
