Blogger Abdurakhmanov reports on Polish authorities' decision to extradite him to Russia
The Polish Border Guard Service decided to extradite blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov, well-known for his criticism of the Chechen authorities, to his homeland. This was reported by the blogger himself on June 17.
On March 9, Magomed Daudov, Speaker of the Chechen parliament, announced blood feud against Tumso Abdurakhmanov for his statement about Akhmat Kadyrov. The authorities of the European countries fundamentally underestimate the danger faced by dissidents in Chechnya and continue to send natives from Northern Caucasus back to their homeland, complain the human rights defenders interviewed by the "Caucasian Knot".
On June 17, blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov himself reported on his Telegram channel that the Polish Border Guard Service had decided to extradite him to Russia.
Tumso Abdurakhmanov accompanied his post with a photocopy of a page of the document in Russian, according to which the decision to refuse to grant refugee status was made due to the fact that the applicant for refugee status failed to leave the territory of Poland in an "acceptable period."
Till present, no information concerning the decision to extradite Tumso Abdurakhmanov has been posted on the websites of the Polish Border Guard Service and the Polish Foreign Office.
