He announced that his whole life would be dedicated to carrying out blood feuds against me and my family members.
There will be an appropriate reaction in the form of a message about the crime. Only I don’t know if there will be a response from the Investigative Committee of Russia at all? I’m starting to have my doubts.”
It should be reminded that on January 20, in Nizhny Novgorod, Chechen police officers broke into the apartment of Saidi Yangulbaev, a former judge of the Supreme Court of Chechnya. The security forces could not kidnap him himself, since he has a judicial immunity status, but they took away his wife Zarema Musaeva. The pretext for the abduction was that she was allegedly a witness in a fraud case in Grozny, where they were going to take her by force.
During the arrest, Zarema Musaeva lost consciousness, and the Chechen police officers dragged her out of the apartment. She suffers from type 2 diabetes and needs insulin injections 5 times a day. The security forces did not allow Musayeva to take warm clothes, medicines and even her passport with her. Relatives feared that Musaeva might die on the way to Chechnya.
The police and FSB officers of Nizhny Novgorod did not respond in any way to the requests of Musayeva’s relatives for help and to the allegations of abduction. The Kremlin said it was not aware of the details of the abduction and preferred not to believe it. Later, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov repeatedly declaredthat the Kremlin does not consider it necessary to deal with complaints about Kadyrov’s threats, and the promises of death are the “personal opinion” of the head of Chechnya.
Saydi Yangulbaev’s son Ibragim, known for his sharp criticism of the Chechen authorities, in an interview with Dozhd TV channel declaredthat in 2015, together with his father and brother, he was kidnapped and tortured at the residence of Ramzan Kadyrov, and Kadyrov personally participated in the torture. Later, according to Ibragim, his brother and father were released, and he himself was taken to the Terek SOBR (now the Akhmat SOBR), where they continued to mock, after which they kept him in the basement for six months.
On January 22, it became known that Saydi Yangulbaev and her daughter left Russia because of fear for his life. On January 31, a criminal case was opened against the abducted Musayeva for “use of violence against a representative of the authorities”. On the same day, her son Ibrahim was charged with public calls for terrorist activities.
