Liquidation case of Ingush Council of Teips suspended
The court has agreed with the arguments of the advocate of the Council of Teips of the Ingush People and postponed the consideration of the lawsuit lodged by the authorities and demanding to liquidate the Council. The trial will resume after decision making on other cases initiated against the Council of Teips.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on October 8, the Department for Ingushetia of the Russian Ministry of Justice (MoJ) appealed to the republic's Supreme Court (SC) with a lawsuit to liquidate the Council of Teips of the Ingush People.
The MoJ of Ingushetia claims that the Charter of the Council of Teips and its legal address fail to meet the requirements of the legislation; the organization failed to report on the use of property, while the emblem posted on the Council's website reminds Nazi symbols and fails to comply with the one indicated in the Charter. In the opinion of the MoJ, another violation was the Sharia trial, organized by the Ingush Council of Teips in December 2018, in order to establish how each of the MPs had voted on the agreement about the Chechen-Ingush administrative border. The MoJ has treated it is an interference in the work of state bodies.
In its lawsuit, the MoJ referred to decisions that had been appealed against and had not yet entered into legal force, Magomed-Basir Ozdoev, a lawyer, working under agreement with the Human Rights Centre (HRC) "Memorial", has indicated in his motion. The Ingush SC has upheld his arguments and suspended the consideration of the lawsuit until the consideration of the appeals.
