Kadyrov: Human Rights Activists Are Not At Risk/ Nothing Threatens Their Life

Posted by Info on 11/07/2010

href=””>The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe voiced concerns about “barely disguised threats” made by Chechnya’s president against the staff of Russia’s Memorial human rights group.

Kadyrov said On TV that journalists and Memorial activists who criticize his policies are well paid by the West and “enemies of the people, enemies of the law, enemies of the state.”
Kadyrov is amazed by rights activists’ regular statements saying that there is a threat to their life in Chechnya. “I believe this is an artificial problem. Nobody in Chechnya endangers their life.”

The Chechen president appealed to his dramatic backgrounds. “I’ve lost my most loved ones at the struggle with terrorism and illegal armed bands that… kidnapped journalists, and human rights activists.”(??)
