GROZNY, June 3. /TASS/. Chechnya’s head Ramzan Kadyrov believes that members of the human rights organization Committee against Torture, whose office in Grozny came under attack on Wednesday, were responsible for provoking unrest.
"The analysis of events shows that the Committee’s members intentionally provoked the incident hoping to gain more publicity in the world media and obtain more US grants. We are very much worried these people, who have nothing to do with human rights activities, have systematically created nervousness in attempts to provoke massive unrest in Grozny," Kadyrov said on his page in a social network.
He warned that nobody was allowed to violate the law and that law enforcement agencies would soon come up with "high-principled assessments after a corresponding probe into all circumstances."
Kadyrov said the media and NGO activists who gathered for a rally in Grozny were joined by relatives of Dzhambulat Dadayev, killed in Grozny a while ago during an attempt by Stavropol Region’s police to detain him on criminal charges, and also members of local human rights organizations.
"At somebody’s initiatives the demonstrators moved to the building where the mobile group of the Nizhni Novgorod-based Committee against Torture has its office. According to unconfirmed evidence one of the Committee’s members proposed the idea. None of the Committee’s members stepped out to meet with the demonstrators. When asked why they had done nothing to protect the rights of the killed man’s mother, they yelled back they would never provide any assistance to killers. That’s what witnesses said," Kadyrov writes.
After that unidentified attackers damaged office furniture. The measures taken prevented violence against anyone, he said.
