As said Dzhamaldinov in an interview with radio station “Moscow speaking”, he did not believe a serious question: “media write anything, and if at all to react – we wanted to spit that write some of the European feeding corrupt journalists”.
Recall that in a report published today by HRW from the words of two victims of torture in Chechnya homosexuals, it was stated that “Magomed Daudov had been in illegal detention in Argun and personally witnessed police beating and humiliating suspected gays, accompanying it with my own offensive remarks”.
In addition, another tortured the informant HRW reported that Daudov was present at the scenes of public repentance of alleged homosexuals: “Shout, insult — worse than ever, then, you are told to come forward, to confess to relatives, well, you’re gay. And you know that otherwise you will almost certainly kill or just continue to torture…”. The man explained that after this followed pressure on the relatives with the words about the need to “wash away the disgrace” and hints at the desirability of killing the “guilty”.
We will remind, earlier Daudov, in conversation with the head of the Council on human rights under the Russian President Mikhail Fedotov has said that we should not believe the media who wrote about his dealings with homosexuals, and claimed that they were members of the Affairs of the Argun.
The authorities of Chechnya as a whole continue to deny the prosecution in the Republic of homosexuals, despite the fact that, according to “Novaya Gazeta”, the first person to write about the situation, preliminary examination of the Federal center found described by victims of torture facilities in Argun, however, they were littered with fresh debris.
