The celebration of the end of the fasting month of Ramadan – 'Id al-Fitr – will last for three days in Chechnya, from July 28 to July 30. These days will be days-off. On these days wealthy Muslims are expected to help the poor and needy ones.
In Dagestan, relatives of the local Asoltan Amaev, who was found on July 23 blown up in his car, question the official version of the reason for his death. "Why don't law enforcers want to see the obvious: Asoltan was killed, and the rest was just a staging," one of the relatives claims.
The Supreme Court of Dagestan has begun considering the appeal complaint against the verdict passed by the Buynaksk City Court against Zarema Bagavutdinova, an activist of the Dagestani Regional Public Organization "Pravozaschita" (Advocacy). At the July 23 court session, the defence asked to cancel the verdict against Bagavutdinova.
Aisha Selimkhanova, an activist of the DRPO "Pravozaschita", told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that all the mosque-goers detained at night on July 23 in Hungarian Fighters Street had been released.
Asoltan Amaev, a resident of the settlement Tarki of Makhachkala, who was considered missing, was found burned down in his car on the road in the Kumtorkalin District, said the Dagestani Regional Public Organization (DRPO) "Pravozaschita" (Advocacy).
Last night, law enforcers of the capital of Dagestan conducted mass detentions of mosque-goers in Hungarian Fighters Street, according to eyewitnesses. Several worshipers from the mosque in Kotrov Street were also taken to the police.
The lawyer Arsen Radjabov, who is defending Isa Abdulkadyrov, detained in Dagestan on suspicion of illegal possession of firearms, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent that investigators ignore the statement about violation by policemen of his client's rights.
Nuriyan Abdulaeva, a resident of the settlement of Tarki of Makhachkala, reports about disappearance of her husband Asoltan Amaev, suspecting that he could be kidnapped by power agents. The Sovietskiy ROVD (District Interior Division) of Makhachkala reports that Amaev was not taken there.
During the week from July 14 to July 20, 2014, the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus claimed at least one human life. These are the results of the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot" based on its own materials and information from other open sources.
During the spring of 2014, in the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus, employees of law enforcement bodies suffered fewer losses than in the winter of 2013-2014, note authors of the quarterly information-analytical bulletin prepared by the Human Rights Centre (HRC) "Memorial".
