[Chechnya] July 27, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg handed down a ruling in a preliminary outstanding case: «Fatima Bazorkina vs. Russia »is the first case of abductions in Chechnya. The complaint that teacher Fatima Bazorkina delivered as early as 2000 was one of the first of its kind.
