Protests Held in Paris and St Petersburg for Estemirova

Local sources have reported that on July 15, two protests were held in the capital city of Paris, France, and Russia’s St Petersbourg due to the fourth anniversary of Chechen human rights activist Natalya Estemirova’s death.

In Paris, at 06.30 pm, about 50 participants gathered in the city center and in St Petersbourg, at 07.00pm, about 30 participants gathered on Nevsky Avenue. The protesters held photos of Natalya Estemirova and other victims of Russian state terrorism, as well as distributing leaflets. The participants asked Russian authorities to begin an immediate and effective investigation into the murder of Estemirova.

Recall that Chechen human rights activist Natalya Estemirova was abducted in front of her apartment in Grozny, Chechnya on July 15, 2009. A few hours later, her body was found in neighboring Ingushetia. So far, Russian authorities have not obtained any results in their investigation.
