Update to the UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of assembly regarding the situation of seven detainees in Ingushetia

SJI submitted an update to the UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of assembly regarding the situation of seven detainees currently held in connection with the protest movement in Ingushetia. One year after a previous submission, six of the detainees are still being held in pre-trial detention and four have had new charges brought against them for extremist activities. One of the detainees, a leader of the protest movement, Akhmed Barakhoyev, is elderly and has several underlying health issues, rendering him particular vulnerable during the Covid-19 pandemic.
