The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has sent questions to the government of Russia on the complaint of a woman from Ingushetia about the extrajudicial execution of her son Muslim Kuriev, the Human Rights Centre (HRC) "Memorial" has reported today.

The "Caucasian Knot" has informed that on May 4, the HRC "Memorial" reported on filing a complaint to the ECtHR on behalf of Leyla Kurieva, whose son was declared killed in the course of a counterterrorist operation (CTO) conducted on March 22, 2014, but, according to the woman and rights defenders, he had fallen victim to extrajudicial execution, when he was at home under the supervision of law enforcers.
