Russian human rights organization "Committee against Torture" decided on its winding up. This information was posted on the website of the organization. Russian Ministry of Justice will express its reaction on August 3.
The head of the "Committee against Torture" Ihor Kalyapin stated that the only reason for such a decision is the "rule of law, which obliges us to lie publicly, saying that our organization serves as a foreign agent."
“Committee Against Torture” is the oldest NGO that provides highly qualified legal assistance in the region, founded by human rights activists in 2000. The organization worked in, and represented the Russians at the European Court of Human Rights.
Human rights protection has no systematic counterparts in the Russian human rights community; that is why Committee represented Russian citizens at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasburg.
In July, the Ministry of Justice warned 12 non-profit organizations from the "foreign agents" list, including the "Committee against Torture”, about further responsibility for violation of legislation.
