Court bans the "Ingush Committee of National Unity"

The Supreme Court (SC) of Ingushetia has upheld the lawsuit of the Prosecutor's Office to ban the work of the "Ingush Committee of National Unity" (ICNU), comprised of the leaders of the last year's protest against the border agreement with Chechnya. This was reported on the Facebook by the Human Rights Centre (HRC) "Memorial".

According to the prosecution, Akhmed Barakhoev, Malsag Uzhakhov and Musa Malsagov "have created an extremist community"; and on October 18, 2018, the ICNU was founded to shelter the activities of this community. The community was created "in order to remove the head of Ingushetia, Yunus-Bek Evkurov, and to destabilize the situation in the republic, and against the foundations of the constitutional order and security of the state," the HRC "Memorial" reports the details of the allegations.

The ban decision was made on the basis of the fact that the organization has no charter and address, and also because the ICNU failed to provide annual reports on the use of property, the "Interfax" reports.
