Local resident refused asylum in Germany abducted in Chechnya

By Ruslan Isayev

NOVYE ATAGI, Chechnya – On May 30 in the village of Novye Atagi, local resident Rizvan Usayev, who had returned to Chechnya only a few days before, was abducted by armed men in several motor vehicles.

Rizvan Usayev and his wife went to Germany several months ago as refugees, asking for political asylum. But the German authorities finally rejected the Chechen family’s application, and Rizvan had to return to Chechnya.

So far his relatives have been unable to discover his location, but according to an unconfirmed version the abduction may have been organized by members of the local law enforcement agencies.
