, Index number: EUR 46/061/2003

In late January 2003, the official investigation into the alleged torture and ill-treatment of Andrei Osenchugov and Aleksei Shishkin at Nizhnii Novgorod pre-trial detention centre was closed. In accordance with procedural law in the Russian Federation, victims and their representatives are not granted access to case files until the end of the investigation. The Nizhnii Novgorod Committee against Torture (NNCAT) has recently been granted access to the official case files, and has passed their findings on to Amnesty International.
