Kadyrov’s Spies said to have operated in Germany
Spies working for head of puppet regime in Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, have been operating in Germany, trying to silence exiled dissidents, according to a report in the German magazine “Der Spiegel” on the 46th issue of 2010 which is published on Saturday November 13.
It said Austrian police reports quoted Chechens in Berlin saying they had been approached by puppet Kadyrov’s agents. Phone taps also showed that a man with Russian citizenship living in Berlin had made a threatening call to a Chechen exile living in Vienna.
The exiles were reportedly urged to go home to Chechnya. Kadyrov, who has the backing of the Kremlin, has been criticized for human rights breaches in Chechnya, which is under occupation of Russia.
Austria began investigating the alleged agents after the killing last year of a Chechen exile Umar Israilov in Vienna. Two alleged gunmen go on trial in Austria next week.
