Natives of Dagestan, who were beaten in the Kalmyk colony, said that they were tortured by about 40 people, most of whom were not taken into custody, the Caucasian Knot reports, citing Aza Aliyeva, the lawyer of the prisoners.
“According to my client, they were tortured for three days: they beat them, hung them up by the hands in handcuffs, poured boiling water over them, extinguished cigarettes on them, and so on. Three days from August 5 to August 8. And about 40 [people] participated in this. When I saw my client on August 9, there was literally no clear place on his body. And these 40 people are not some abstract figures, but people with first and last names. And, of course, I believe that everyone who participated in the torture, and not just five people, should be taken into custody and brought to justice,” she said.
“When they assure you that Russia is not a torture chamber or a prison for peoples, just read again this news,” the Free Nations League commented on the situation.
