Ingush SC would not reconsider judgement on MPs' lawsuit to Parliament

Today, the Collegium of the Supreme Court (SC) of Ingushetia has dismissed the complaint of a group of republic's MPs, who disputed the outcomes of the voting on the bill on the border with Chechnya.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the signing on September 26, 2018, by Ramzan Kadyrov and Yunus-Bek Evkurov of the agreement on fixing the Chechen-Ingush border triggered mass protests in Ingushetia in the fall of 2018. The voting at the Ingush Parliament (National Assembly) on the ratification of the border agreement was held on October 4, 2018. The authorities of Ingushetia announced that the majority of MPs voted for the agreement, but the MPs themselves refuted this fact. Several of them signed a statement about a voting fraud; and on October 11, 2018, a group of residents of Ingushetia filed an administrative lawsuit, demanding that the Parliament's vote be abolished. On April 2, 2019, the Magas District Court dismissed the lawsuit lodged by MPs against the Ingush Parliament.

Today, the SC Ingushetia has considered the appeal against the decision made in April on the administrative lawsuit passed by the Magas District Court and upheld it.
