The Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights appealed to the General Prosecutor in the case of Adam Mamilov, Chechen citizen. The Foundation expressed it’s concern in reference to the cassation to the Supreme Court submitted by the General Prosecutor.

In June 2010 the District Court in Bielsko-Biała did not agree to extradite Adam Mamilov to Russia. In it’s justification the Court noted that the extradition would be inadmissible under provisions of the Polish law as well as under the European Convention of Human Rights with particular emphasis on the prohibition of torture or other inhuman treatment.
In 2009 Adam Mamilov was awarded a tolerated stay permit. The decision was justified by the fact that in Russia, where he could be expelled, he could be affected by acts contrary to the provisions of the European Convention including the torture or inhuman or degrading treatment.
The Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights wanted to drew the Prosecutor General’s attention to the fact that the European Court of Human Rights has passed more than 150 judgments in cases against Russia concerning violation of the prohibition of torture in Chechnya. This number illustrates the giant scale of the human rights violation in this region.
The Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights emphasized that the Russia Federation, as the only state in the Council of Europe, consistently does not agree to publish reports prepared by the European Committee for the Prevention of Torture. The Foundation reminds that the Committee informed that in reference to Chechnya and Ingushetia it„still receives an alarming information showing the worsening situation and the serious human rights violations”.
