Russia: Confronting the circle of injustice threats and pressure faced by lawyers in the North Caucasus
Human rights violations such as enforced disappearances, unlawful killings, torture and other ill-treatment committed by members of law enforcement agencies are regularly reported from the North Caucasus and almost never effectively investigated. These violations, and the Russian authorities’ systematic failure to investigate them effectively, produces a circle of injustice and leads to further violations of fundamental human rights. As this report shows, lawyers who confront the circle of injustice in the North Caucasus often themselves become its victims.
