Russia Ignores ECHR: Tajik Refugee Abducted

Hurshedin Fazilov was working as a butcher in the shop by the historical mosque on Novokuznetskaya when he suddenly became a refugee. Tajikistan accused him of recruiting fellow Tajiks and sending them to Turkey. The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) defended Fazilov from deportation, but it didn’t help: bypassing all the legal procedures and in violation of international law, on the 15 June he was forcibly extracted from Russia.
