RUSSIAN FEDERATION: CHECHNYAAdam Abubakarov, aged 16
As of 1 June 2000, sixteen-year-old Adam Abubakarov had not been seen since
his detention by Russian forces on 22 or 23 February 2000. His family believes
that he is still being held in incommunicado detention at a prison hospital
at the pre-trial detention centre (SIZO) in the Russian town of Pyatigorsk,
although they have not been officially informed of his whereabouts for over
three months. Since his detention, Adam Abubakarov has reportedly been held
in several secret "filtration camps", where torture and ill-treatment have
been routine and systematic.
In a meeting in Moscow on 2 June, Amnesty International requested the help
of the staff of Vladimir Kalamanov’s office in discovering the whereabouts
of Adam Abubakarov. Vladimir Kalamanov is the special representative of the
Russian President on human rights in Chechnya. His Commission is the body
responsible for collecting complaints from civilians in Chechnya who are victims
of human rights violations, as part of the Russian government’s national
investigation.
FURTHER RECOMMENDED ACTION: Please send telegrams/faxes/express/airmail
letters in Russian or in your own language:
- expressing concern at the reported continuing incommunicado detention of
Adam Abubakarov;

and state of health, and to explain the legal basis for his arrest and detention;
- urging the authorities to grant him immediate access to his family, a lawyer
of his own choice and appropriate medical care;
- asking the authorities to release him, unless he is officially charged with
a recognizably criminal offence;
- asking the authorities to initiate an investigation into his reported
incommunicado detention and for those responsible to be brought to justice;
- urging the Russian government immediately to make public the names,
whereabouts, current state of health and the charges brought against everyone
detained in the various "filtration camps".
