Russian Federation: Appeal Case Update: The killing of six civilians near Dai, Chechen Republic

, Index number: EUR 46/019/2005

In this update to EUR 46/016/05, Amnesty International expresses its concern that four members of the Russian military intelligence have once again been found not responsible in law for killing civilians. A jury trial has ruled that they did not breach the law when they shot dead six unarmed civilians after their car failed to stop when requested on 11 January 2002. In May 2004 a court in Rostov-on-Don had also acquitted the soldiers on grounds that they had been following orders.
