, Index number: EUR 72/8940/2018

On 17 July 2018, an ethnic Ingush, Aslan Yandiev was extradited from Slovakia to Russian Federation. Amnesty International, the Human Rights League and International Partnership for Human Rights consider that the extradition violated Slovakia’s obligations not to put persons within its jurisdiction at risk of torture and other ill-treatment, and to guarantee the right to a fair trial. The organizations urge the Slovak authorities to carry out a rigorous monitoring of the conditions of Mr Yandiev’s detention in the Russian Federation, and also call on the authorities to involve human rights NGOs in the monitoring and to make its outcomes public.
