Russian Federation: The Network case, shrouded in secrecy and marred by numerous torture allegations
Amnesty International is concerned about the ongoing prosecution of at least 10 young men from Penza and St Petersburg, mostly left-wing political activists describing themselves as antifascists and anarchists, in connection with the so called “Network” (Set’) case. It is particularly concerning that the complaints, made by several of the co-accused, about torture and other ill-treatment allegedly being used to extract “confessions”, are not being investigated effectively.
