European Court dismisses Russia's complaint on the case of Yandiev who disappeared in Chechnya in 2000

The European Court for Human Rights has rejected the complaint of Russia on the case of Hadjimurat Yandiev who disappeared in Chechnya in 2000, the "Echo Moskvy" Radio reports with reference to the France Press.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported earlier that Hadjimurat Yandiev was detained by federal forces early in February of 2000 in Alkhan-Kale when he was quitting Grozny, the capital of Chechnya, with a group of militants. In front of TV cameras of CNN and several Russian TV Channels General-Colonel Alexander Baranov subjected him to a severe interrogation and then ordered to kill him. Soldiers took Yandiev away, and nobody ever saw him again since.

On July 27, 2006, the European Court for Human Rights in Strasbourg ruled that Russia had broken Yandiev's "right for life," It was the first decision of this sort on the case of the people who disappeared in Chechnya. Fatima Bazorkina, Yandiev's mother, was recognized to be a person who underwent inhuman treatment in connection with a complete uncertainty about the fate of her son. Moscow should pay out compensation to her worth 35,000 US dollars.
