Emilkhan Sadaev in Deportation Prison

Chechen human rights defenders have reported that former Chechen resistance fighter Emilkhan Sadaev was found at a deportation center in Sweden.

According to the information, on January 24, 2012, at 7:00am local time, the Swedish special police for migration arrested Emilkhan Sadaev (aka Ruslan Atkaev) in the city of Flen. He was confined to a deportation center, and was expected to be extradited on February 2. It was learned that on February 2, 2012, at 10:00am, Swedish authorities tried to put him on a plane, however, to avoid extradition, Emilkhan Sadaev committed an act of desperation. He repeatedly hit his head on the edge of a table and cut his head in several places. Because of the gushing blood, he was taken to the deportation center’s hospital.

Since February 2, the Swedish authorities continue to violate Emilkhan Sadaev’s basic rights. For example, he was not allowed to see his lawyer and his clothes were removed and he was kept in a cell nearly nude. In spite of the all his requests, the Swedish police refuse to give his clothes back.

Emilkhan Sadaev also started a hunger strike, but in the meantime, the Swedish authorities are threating to extradite him directly to the pro-Russian regime in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.

On the other hand, Chechen patriots, human rights defenders and friends of the Chechen nation organized protests in Sweden, Finland, Austria, and France. However, there is still not any change in Emilkhan Sadaev’s situation.
