Construction Worker Abducted in Chechnya
Human Rights Center “Memorial” reported that a Chechen has appealed to them about her son’s abduction.
According to a written statement from Achkoy-Martan resident Malika Ismailova, her son, Aslan Ruslanovich Ismailov, born 1983, was a construction worker in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria’s capital city of Grozny. On November 16, he received a call from unknown people who asked him to meet someone named Lom-Ali of Ingushetia, in front of the construction site. After arriving at the site, unknown people put him into a car and drove off to an unknown destination. He was able to call his mother and tell her that he was being kidnapped and that she must get in touch with his uncle. Later, his mother repeatedly called Aslan’s mobile phone but it was turned off.
As of November 22, Aslan’s relatives have no information about his location or fate. “I do not understand why they kidnapped my son. He does not engage in anything illegal. Even if they suspect him of something, they must not treat him like this; they must follow the law,” said his mother.
