Chechen Prisoner Faces Torture
The website Ichkeria.info has published a message from the Organization of Former Prisoners of Russian Filtration Camps from Chechen Republic Ichkeria (OUFKL ChRI), about the torture and humiliation of a Chechen prisoner in Tomsk, Russia.
According to the article, Chechen prisoner Zubary Adlanovich Idrisov, born in 1991, has been subjected to sadistic and brutal torture at the penal colony FBU IK-3 in the city of Tomsk, which is within the Russian Federation.
On January 31, 2011, one of the Zubayr’s cellmates was released. After his release, the former prisoner went to visit Zubayr’s mother, Anu Idrisova and explained everything to her.
The colony was visited by representatives from local human rights organizations; however, the rights defenders who met with Zubary could only see that his face had numerous bruises. Zubary did not dare speak about happened there, but the evidence of torture and cruel treatment spoke in his face.
Anu Idrisova requested that human rights defenders, community leaders and all people who care about these issues speak against this treatment and help to make sure that her son is not killed.
Recall that torture cases from this penal colony have been reported before. According to the victims and their relatives, the methods used against the prisoners are comparable with Nazi concentration camps.
The director of penal colony FBU IK-3 is Vladimir Yosifovich Omelchenko. You may reach the prison by telephone at: +7 8 (3822) 63 36 75
