Caucasian Knot: Pliev: Judge In Magomed Evloev’s Case Is Under Prosecutors’ Pressure




Pliev: Judge in Magomed Evloev’s case is under prosecutors’ pressure


The judge refused to re-qualify the case dealing with the murder of Magomed Evloev, owner of the website “Ingushetia.Ru”, into another article of the Criminal Code because of the pressure exerted by the prosecutor’s office. This opinion was stated by human rights activist and advocate Musa Pliev, now appointed as adviser of President of Ingushetia to coordinate the work of power agencies.

“Outgoing from lawyer’s practice, I’d like to note that when the prosecutor’s office approves a ridiculous bill of particulars on a hastily initiated case, then, it is interested to have this bill of particulars to survive, therefore, we’ve made this conclusion,” Mr Pliev told the “Caucasian Knot” correspondent.

“From the moment of Evloev’s murder, the prosecutor’s office interfered with the court and investigation. I think that there was a pressure on the judge, since she passed an absolutely absurd and illegal decision, having deprived the victims of their right to justice. This decision was made not under the law but under some other issues. The judge has breached Article 125 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, having come to the session with ready documents. This decision illegal and unconstitutional,” Musa Pliev has stated.

As he said, the defence will appeal against the decision to the Supreme Court of Ingushetia on December 12.

Sajkhan Umarov for the SNA CHECHENPRESS, April, 14th 2008

On Friday 11 April 2008 the Turkish MPs held a representative conference in Anakara (Turkey) dedicated to the problems of Chechnya and the whole of the North Caucasus. In addition to the Turkish MPs the conference was attended by Turkish social and political leaders, human rights activists and representatives of the media.

The ChRI honorary consul in Turkey Mr.Medet addressed the participants in his welcome speech. He provided a short scientific and historical background of the Chechen people, talked about the many centuries of the vaihakhs’ and other North Caucasus peoples’  resistance struggle against the colonial expansion of the Russian empire. Mr.Medet stressed the fact that the conquest and military aggression in the North Caucasus by Russia did not meet with the wild and isolated tribes the way it is often portrayed by the Russian historians and propaganda men. Those were the peoples with an ancient history and a developed statehood. In particular, Mr. Medet drew the attention of the audience to the fact that as far back as the 19th century, Shamil’s Imamat had an advanced constitution, long before Russia got itself a similar document at the beginning of the 20th century.

The conference participants and representatives of the media were particularly keen to learn about the present stage of the national liberation struggle of the Chechens and other North Caucasus peoples.  Many questions raised at the conference were about the military and political consequences for the ChRI of the declaration of the Caucasus Emirate. The ChRI General Representative in Muslim Countries Said Askhabov addressed these questions. He told the participants that the Caucasus Emirate declaration violated all legal rules and principles of Islam and was a targeted provocation on the part of a certain group of people who had a vested interest in splitting up (introducing a fitna) in the resistance movement and in depriving the Chechen people of all the legitimate foundations of its struggle against the Russian aggressors. He adduced concrete facts which demonstrated that the group of provocateurs who had initiated the idea of the Caucasus Emirate were acting on the orders and under the direct influence of the Russian special services.

The deputy General Representative of the ChRI in Muslim Countries Yakub Magomadov, who also spoke at the conference assured the participants that many fighters and commanders of the Chechen Resistance were adamant in their resolve to defend the state sovereignty of the ChRI and had no intention to deviate from the path bequeathed to the by the great son of the Chechen people Dzhokhar Dudaev and his successors. Yakub Magomadov stressed that despite the attempts by the group of provocateurs who hate the Chechen people, and by their Russian masters, due to the decisive measures taken by the Chechen Parliament the Chechen statehood has managed to preserve its legal foundations.

All the participants of the conference were steadfast in their support of the national liberation struggle of the Chechen people and other peoples of the North Caucasus and assured the ChRI representatives that the Turkish MPs, representatives of public, political and human rights organisations would continue to assist their brothers in the Caucasus in their valiant and just struggle.

Prague Watchdog: Not The Time For A Hero

December 16th 2008 · Prague Watchdog / Magomed Toriyev

Not the time for a hero

Not the time for a hero

By Magomed Toriyev, special to Prague Watchdog

By adopting the federal law “On measures aimed at organizing self-government in the Republic of Ingushetia and the Chechen Republic”, a well-intentioned Kremlin has created a major headache for Ingushetia’s new president.

The republic has frozen in anticipation. Parliament is supposed to enact this law in the territory of Ingushetia, but the problem has traditionally focused on the term “territory” – the line along which people have drawn the republic’s border is not at all the same as the one which Russia’s Federal Agency of Geodesy and Cartography imposes on the map, year after year. We are talking about the eternally vexed question of Prigorodny district.

Back at the beginning of December, Ingushetia’s President Yunus-Bek Yevkurov told the deputies that they must deal with the Law on self-government before the end of the year. This means that the National Assembly must clearly define the republic’s boundaries.

Even the decision to include the Prigorodny district in Ingushetia as part of the republic may, in addition to all the other regalia bestowed on him, give Yevkurov the status of a national hero. Even if it proves impossible to “take” Prigorodny district when the law is enacted, that will not stand in the way of the President’s canonization. In this case the declaration of intent is more important than the practical result.

President Aushev, who constantly came into conflict with the Kremlin because of Chechnya, none the less preferred to act with circumspection where the issue of Prigorodny district was concerned and avoid setting unrealizable goals. He signed one routine agreement after another on the return of Ingush refugees, without ever pretending to the role of consolidator of the Ingush lands. Ossetia has not complied fully, or even satisfactorily, with any of the agreements, justifying its reluctance to let the refugees return by claiming that “Ingush and Ossetians can never live together” or referring to the issue of the “water protection zone”.

Most of the 75,000 refugees have not been able to return to their home villages. Already a generation has grown up for whom home means caravans [vagonchiki].

Against the backdrop of the war in South Ossetia, dissatisfaction with the Kremlin is acquiring clear outlines in Ingushetia. Indeed, Russia, which is capable of toppling the army of a foreign state in five days and taking an entire people under its protectorate, is unable to resolve the issue of the return to its own citizens of their own land and homes of which they have been deprived for over sixteen years.

Today the Russian system of government, including the one that prevails in Ingushetia, is so arranged that the only meaningful actor in the political process is the head of the federal entity. As elsewhere, the parliament here has long lost the function of an organ of power. Individuals with mandates that were purchased, or extorted because of family ties, do only what they are told to do by their main and sole elector – the President of Ingushetia. And that is all.

And consequently the President is the final and only authority to which the people’s anger and accusations of betrayal of national interests can be addressed. Yevkurov has not the slightest chance of evading responsibility. But his own position is as yet unknown. So far he has refrained from making any political statements about the Law on local self-government.

The President and his team now have a real prospect of attaining the almost absolute legitimacy which he needs, by supporting a decision that has made a disastrous incursion into the structure of inter-ethnic relations and administrative-territorial boundaries that has been established and maintained by the federal centre. In this case he may have very substantial reserves with which to fight the armed underground, since, ignoring Salafist ideology, the Ingush people formerly supported the mujahedeen as a kind of field militia which acted against the Zyazikov regime. Having “recognized” Yevkurov’s authority as legitimate and ”theirs”, the Ingush will lose their need for acts of indirect retaliation against an unjust state.

The actual return of the long-lost Ingush lands may take another 200 years, but Yevkurov will gain enough legitimacy from the issue of Prigorodny district to last him in the conflict with the federal centre for a long time to come.

One should not fail to note that altering the administrative boundaries on paper will under no circumstances lead to a renewal of fighting between the Ingush and the Ossetians. There is also no danger of Ossetia being threatened with a seizure of the lands of Prigorodny district. At the present stage, it is enough to give people hope of an imagined future and to strengthen their belief that government can act according to an “ethnic” scenario.

But in the Caucasus bravery verging on insanity is valued and respected more than intelligence and prudence. All that Yevkurov needs is a demonstration of lofty madness, not its actual embodiment.

Today the Ingush intelligentsia insists that such a decision by Parliament and President should be the subject of endless reviews by the courts at all levels. The Ossetian and Ingush sides can be provided with all the facilities to determine the legality and legitimacy for the lawful return of Prigorodny district to Ingushetia, with no fixed term set for the examination of the issue. For the first time in the Caucasus a precedent will be created for the clarification of inter-ethnic and territorial claims in a court of law rather than on the battlefield.

It is possible that the Russian president, a distinguished lawyer and legal expert, will see this as an acceptable solution to the problem. His appointee Yevkurov will conquer the Wahhabis, while the question of Prigorodny district will be decided by a district court one way or the other, without war and ethnic cleansing.

Described thus, the project looks quite realistic, but only within the old federalism of the Yeltsin era. Putinist centralism, with its desire to ensure the status quo by any means, its almost squeamish attitude to Caucasian disputes, its government of Caucasian territories by indirect pressure, more or less rule out the possibility of a Yevkurovite démarche. But one can always dream!

KC: ”The Victory Comes Only To Those Who Are Patient”

”The victory comes only to those who are patient”
Publication time: 23 February 2008, 09:57
In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Praise be to Allah, whom we praise and pray for help and forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the wickedness of our own deeds. Whomever Allah guides, cannot be led astray and whomever Allah misguides, none can guide him.

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, Who created us Muslims and blessed us with His mercy, with Jihad on His straight path to win the Paradise.

I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Mohammad is His slave and His Messenger, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him

And then

“O ye who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam!” (3:102)

Dear brothers and sisters!

Exactly in this month, that of Safar 29, 1363 (February 23, 1944), the Chechen nation experienced one of the most difficult periods in its history: a total deportation to Central Asia and to Siberia.

Several days later, our brothers Balkars and Karachays also suffered genocidal expulsion, organized by the kuffar (infidels) on its pagan holiday of “March 8″.

Decades have passed since then (66 years of the Hijri but 64 years of the Gregorian calendar). We are facing this new anniversary of the deportation in a new battle.

The enemy remains the same, he keeps on striving after the same goal. The main weapon against the Muslims still is the genocide, each time taking increasingly sophisticated and insidious forms.

Dirty order and amorality accompany the physical destruction. It is our religion, Islam, which is first of all subjected to fierce attack, because the enemy knows that Islam is our prop and the source from which Muslims obtain their strength.

The kuffar are well aware of Islam being the basis of our culture and our freedom, what can be changed only by perverting and destroying the religion.

Nevertheless the Jihad continues despite all the diligence of the enemy. Our forces are growing, but we feel the support of Allah, who call upon to us in his Holy Quran:

“O ye who believe! Persevere in patience and constancy; vie in such perseverance; strengthen each other; and fear Allah. that ye may prosper…” (3:200).

Responding to this call of Allah, we say we will not be tired, our patience will not run low.

At the call of President Dzhokhar Dudayev (Shaheed inshaAllah), Chechen people rejected the mourning by declaring this day a Day of the Rebirth of the Chechen Nation.

This was done in order to show that the Muslims had no right to gloom but the battle was just erupting. The victory comes to patient ones. Truly Allah the Almighty and the Majestic is with us in our Jihad.

All that has happened and is happening to us now, happens by the will of Almighty Allah, so we hope for the best.

“Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere, who say, when afflicted with calamity: “To Allah We belong, and to Him is our return”:- They are those on whom (Descend) blessings from Allah, and Mercy, and they are the ones that receive guidance” (2: 155-157).

The Muslims know that victory is not granted to those who have superiority over enemy in material force. However it is granted to those who have the fear of God, who call for what is praiseworthy and who keeps others from abomination by fighting to establish the laws of Allah on His earth.

The greatness and the power belong only to Allah, not to Russia, the UN, USA or NATO, as so often, some misguided say. Indeed, all orders and decisions belong only to Allah, Who is Almighty and Great!

“To the Hypocrites give the glad tidings that there is for them (but) a grievous penalty;- Yea, to those who take for friends unbelievers rather than believers: is it honour they seek among them? Nay,- all honour is with Allah.” (4:38-139)

“(These are) the ones who wait and watch about you: if ye do gain a victory from Allah, they say: “Were we not with you?”- but if the unbelievers gain a success, they say (to them): “Did we not gain an advantage over you, and did we not guard you from the believers?” but Allah will judge betwixt you on the Day of Judgment. And never will Allah grant to the unbelievers a way (to triumphs) over the believers.” (4:141)

Therefore, be patient, hope for the support of Allah, and fight on His way. Be honest in worship, be wary of what He has forbidden and strictly adhere to the laws of Allah, so then Almighty Allah will grant you the victory, inshaAllah!
Amir of the Caucasus Emirate,
Abu Usman (Dokka Umarov)

“Amir Beslan”, Beslan Bekmurzayev, the chechen commander of the “Dzokhar (Grozny) Front”,martyred monday evening in Grozny. He drove through Grozny in a car together with two other mujahideen,when his car was suddenly ambushed by a large group of Kadyrovtsy-traitors and Russian FSB-bandits.

The Caucasus Emirate. An official statement of the CE Vekalat
Publication time: 24 December 2007, 09:25
The editors of Kavkaz-Center have received the text of an official statement of the Vakil of the Vekalat of the Caucasus Emirate (the Head of the Official Representation of CE) in connection to recent events in Caucasus and information that has been published in the media. The text (in Russian) is published on the official site of the Caucasus Emirate. (

Official statement of the Vekalat of the Caucasus Emirate

In connection to known events in Caucasus (the proclamation of the Caucasus Emirate, the power struggle in Georgia and in Russia, etc) there has actively been spread in the mass media various slanderous rumours, lies and disinformation using the “Chechen theme”, which is raised today as a propaganda shield by different groups and entire states.

Thus, the Chechen murtad (apostate) Kakiev, who is the puppet leader of a gang called “Zapad” (West), has on order by his masters in Moscow allegedly said that “Chechen special forces” have entered Abkhazia with intention to fight against Georgia if needed. Moscow has given maximal publicity to this statement, with the explicit aim of blackmailing, threatening and intimidating Tbilisi.

It is clear that the criminal Kremlin regime is prepared to use the “Chechen card” and the so-called “North Caucasus volunteers” for its purposes, in view of the Kosovo problem and in event of a resumption of hostilities between Abkhazia and Georgia,.

I responsibly declare on behalf of the leadership of the Caucasus Emirate that there are no “Chechen special forces” in Abkhazia, as there are no and will be no “North Caucasus volunteers.” The Caucasian Mujahideen will not participate in Moscow’s provocations, and will do everything possible to foil the plans of the Kremlin.

Russian occupiers have deployed members of the puppet gang “Zapad” to Abkhazia, but these have no relations neither with the Chechen people nor with the former Chechen Republic of Ichkeria or with the Caucasus Emirate.

In this regard, the leadership of the Caucasus Emirate is ready to discuss with the leadership of Georgia acceptable joint action to neutralize the gang of Chechen murtads (traitors) in Abkhazia and in South Ossetia, where is quartered another band of puppet fighters “Vostok” (East).

Another rough anti-Chechen provocation has been organized against this background. This time from London. This provocation aim at helping its directors in the struggle for power in Georgia

The opponents of Mikhail Saakashvili has distributed in the British mass media an audio tape, on which is recorded a conversation by two people about the physical elimination of one of the candidates for the presidency of Georgia, Arkadi (Badri) Patarkatsishvili.

According to a statement by Patarkatsashvili himself, as well as his partner Boris Berezovsky, who gave this audio tape to journalists to be published by the The Sunday Times, the hit man was Uvays Akhmadov, presented as a “Chechen field commander.”

It is claimed that Uvays Akhmadov secretly recorded his conversation with the “orderer” of the murder and then gave the tape to Patarkatsashvili.

In this regard, I officially declare that Uvays Akhmadov is a private person and has nothing to do with either the leadership of the Caucasus Emirate or with the Vekalat (Representative office) of CE abroad, or with the Armed Forces or with the special services of the Caucasus Emirate.

Unlike his hero-brothers Akhmadov, who became Shaheeds (inshaAllah) in the Jihad against the Russians kafirs (infidels), Uvays Akhmadov has never been a “field commander”.

According to available information, Uvays Akhmadov was deceived and used by Akhmed Zakayev and through him a meeting was arranged with the “orderer” of the murder of Patarkatsishvili. According to some information, the “orderer” has been under arrest for several months in Georgia.

Who conducted the actions of Zakayev is the subject of a separate investigation.

However, this provocation started in London and it returned to London.

The leadership of the Caucasus Emirate is not going to interfere in the internal political processes in Georgia, and it is always ready to engage in constructive dialogue and contacts with responsible representatives of this country on all issues of mutual interest.

Also, the leadership of the Caucasus Emirate does not intend to allow anyone to use in their political games the name of the Chechens and the Caucasus Mujahideen.

In this regard, I officially declare that Akhmed Zakayev is a private person, a refugee, and has nothing to do either with the Caucasus Emirate nor with the former Chechen Republic of Ichkeria or with the Mujahideen. The activities of Zakayev are being investigated by the Mukhabarat (Intelligence Service) of the Caucasus Emirate.

Zakayev is accused of dissemination of appeals, in war time conditions, to disobey authorities of the Caucasus Emirate, as well as for attempts to introduce disturbance and split among the Mujahideen.

Zakayev organized an illegal group of 5-7 members of the abolished parliament and the Cabinet of Ministers of CHRI, by which he has tried to do shady deals in the name of “CHRI government in exile”, by spreading lies, slander and disinformation in the mass media.

In this regard, I officially declare that former Internet agencies of CHRI, “Chechenpress” and “Daymohk”, as well as other agencies related to these, have nothing to do either with the Caucasus Emirate or with the Mujahideen. Neither the leadership of the Caucasus Emirate nor the Mujahideen bear any responsibility for the information aired on these Internet agencies.

In addition, the Zakayev’s case is reviewed by the Supreme Shariah Court of the Caucasus Emirate based upon facts of his remarks against Muslims, mocking at Islam and Shariah, and calling to Kufr (disbelief).

I inform all interested parties on behalf of the Caucasus Emirate, that the only legitimate authority who represents the Caucasus Emirate abroad is the Vekalat of the Caucasus Emirate.

All other organizations, groups and individuals have nothing to do neither with the Caucasus Emirate nor with the Caucasus or Chechen Mujahideen.

Any statements or measures taken abroad by anybody on behalf of the command of the Mujahideen, the authorities of the Caucasus Emirate or the former CHRI without a warrant by the Vekalat of CE will be considered as a provocation and will be perceived by the leadership of the Caucasus Emirate as deliberate hostile acts.

Vakil of Vekalat of the Caucasus Emirate,
Umar Dakayev

Reuters:Russia, Georgia ordered to protect ethnic groups

From: sataney_b1  (Original Message) Sent: 10/15/2008 3:53 PM
Wed Oct 15, 2008 2:37pm EDT

THE HAGUE (Reuters) – The UN’s highest court ordered Russia and Georgia on Wednesday to ensure the security of all ethnic groups in the breakaway Georgian regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia and adjacent areas of Georgia.

In a provisional ruling on a lawsuit filed by Georgia that alleged human rights violations by Russia in the region, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) said Georgia and Russia must refrain from sponsoring any act of racial discrimination.

It also ordered both parties to do all in their power to ensure the security of persons, freedom of movement and the protection of refugees’ property.

The court ruled it had jurisdiction to order the provisional measures and ordered both parties to inform it of their compliance.

Court rulings, including provisional orders, are binding but the court has no police force to enforce its decisions. A judgment on the merits of the case proper could take at least another year.

Georgia and Russia fought a five-day war in August after Georgia tried to retake pro-Moscow South Ossetia by force. Russian troops ousted Georgian forces from South Ossetia and pushed deep into Georgia proper in an operation it said was needed to prevent further attacks on civilians.

In its filing to the ICJ, Tbilisi alleged Moscow breached an anti-discrimination convention and called on the court to order Moscow to take immediate action.

Moscow disputes the court’s jurisdiction, denies the claims and has called on the court to dismiss the case.

Moscow recognized Abkhazia and South Ossetia as independent states in the wake of the conflict, a move condemned by the West. Talks on the issue in Geneva broke down on Wednesday and were suspended until next month, an EU envoy said.
