Urgent Appeal from the Council of Chechen Refugees in Azerbaijan
Our editorial staff has received an e-mail about an extradition threat against a Chechen prisoner in Azerbaijan.
Here is the statement:
The Council of Chechen Refugees in Azerbaijan appeals to all humanitarian organizations and people of goodwill.
We received an alert about Abdulla Magomedovich Abdulkerimov, a Chechen prisoner who is serving time in a prison in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijani authorities want to hand him over to the Russian authorities. It is no secret how this will end for Abdulla if he is handed over. “Russian justice” is very well known all around the world. Russian brutality and the torture of Chechen prisoners has become the norm inside the Russian Federation.
Abdulla Magomedovich Abdulkerimov is currently serving his sentence in the Number 2 Prison of the Penitentiary Service of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Azerbaijan. He is waiting to be handed over to the Russian authorities.
We urge you to intervene and help in combatting this tyranny. Do not allow him to become Russia’s newest victim.
