SLOVAKIA: Man at Risk of Torture if Extradited to RUSSIA - URGENT ACTION

Amnesty International, USA, Feb. 21, 2018.

Aslan Yandiev was detained by the Slovakian authorities on 20 January 2011, shortly before the Prosecutor General’s office of the Russian Federation submitted a request for his extradition. He is now at risk of imminent extradition to Russia following the Minister of Justice’s decision on 7 February to authorise it. If extradited to Russia, Aslan Yandiev would be at risk of torture and other ill-treatment.
