Protest in Belgium against the Extradition of Chechen Asylum Seekers
Local sources have reported that a group of Chechen refugees organized a protest in front of the Office of the Commissioner General for Refugees and Stateless Persons (CGVS) in Brussels, Belgium.
According to the information, on March 25, between 9.00 and 11.00, about 60 Chechen refugees gathered in front of the CGVS building in Brussels. The protesters held Chechen Republic of Ichkeria flags and various banners against the extradition of Chechen asylum seekers.
The protest is organized under the concern of Chechen asylum seekers, which is related to the recent visit of Isa Khadzhimuradov, director of the Department of External Relations of the pro-Moscow regime that is installed in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria. During his visit in February 2013, the representative of the pro-Russian regime were able to met with Karl-Heinz Lambertz, the president of the Meuse–Rhine Euregion district in Belgium. Ramzan Ampukayev, a non-official special representative of Ramzan Kadyrov and Isa Gambulatov, a Chechen trainer in the Belgian “Raeren” wrestling club, accompanied his meeting.
On the other hand, we urge the Chechen community in Belgium, not to contact Isa Gambulatov and Ramzan Ampukayev, and do not send their children to the “Raeren” wrestling club, because it appears that Isa Gambulatov is also working for the pro-Russian regime.
