Russian Federation: Stop unfounded prosecution of Dagestani journalist and reprisals against Chernovik
Amnesty International is deeply concerned about the ongoing harassment of the independent weekly newspaper Chernovik in Makhachkala, Republic of Dagestan. The organization believes that the search conducted in the newspaper’s office on 2 October, as well as ongoing criminal prosecution of its journalist Abdulmumin Gadzhiev under “terrorism” charges are part of a consolidated campaign by the authorities to suppress one of the most popular independent media outlets in Dagestan. The ongoing harassment of Chernovik is the latest attack on media freedom and the right to freedom of expression in Russia.
