Russian security forces are using tortures, including subjecting to electric shock, against the arrested in the occupied Crimea, as coordinator of Crimean contact group on human rights Abdureshit Dzhepparov told in a meeting of Crimean solidarity, Krym.Realii reports.
In particular, two men were tortured after they had been arrested in the searches in Novoklenove village on August 10.
“They are not citizens of Russia, so they don’t want their names to be announced… According to them, after being searched, they were tortured. The security forces representatives tied them to chairs and beat them up. Beat them with legs, not just one person, and then they were subjected to electric shock. Into the body part, which isn’t appropriate to name, a metal object was put, and electrocuted. This happened 12 times. After that they were threatened into silence,” the advocate for human rights told.
Lawyer Edem Semedliaev also confirms the information about torturing.
“This person told, that he was beaten up in such a way, that doesn’t leave any marks,” he said.
