AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL ACCUSES RUSSIA OF USING TORTURE.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 66
In a report issued today, Amnesty International accuses Russian security forces of the widespread and systematic use of torture. The report says the victims are often members of Russia’s ethnic minorities, especially Chechens, who are rounded up on suspicion of having committed a crime and subjected to physical pressure in an attempt to elicit a confession.
