  • The travel restrictions (podpiska o nevyezde) issued on 30 September prevent Sapiyat Magomedova from travelling to Moscow, where she was accessing ongoing medical care for her injuries and receiving legal and other support from Moscow-based human rights organizations regarding the criminal allegations against her. She has told Amnesty International of a number of serious procedural violations, fabrication of false evidence, and political pressure on the investigator. We understand that the Chairman of the Investigation Committee in Moscow could transfer the investigations to a federal level. He can also order for her restrictions to be lifted and for her alleged assaulters to be suspended during the investigation.
    Amnesty International is concerned that Sapiyat Magomedova may be targeted for her legitimate activities as a lawyer.
