Chechen Prisoner Faces Brutal Torture and Needs Help
Local sources have reported that since February 2012, a male Chechen civilian has faced torture in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
According to the information, Israil Shakhrudinovich Yakhyaev, born in 1988, was abducted from his house in the city of Argun by the pro-Moscow regime’s armed bandits in February 2012. His relatives tracked him to the pro-Russian regime’s Shali ROVD (District Interior Division) building. It was discovered that he has been held hostage there since his abduction. Throughout his time in custody he has been brutally tortured to the point of becoming disabled. Recently, he was transferred into the pro-Moscow regime’s SIZO (Pre-Trial Establishment) No.1 in the city of Grozny, where he still remains.
His relatives stated that Israil’s situation is extremely difficult and he can no longer move normally. Still, armed bandits from the pro-Russian regime will not let him be seen by a doctor. His family fears for his life and is asking for help from all people of goodwill.
