Social network users criticize Chechen law enforcers for reprimanding detainees

After a post on Instagram about a preventive conversation held by policemen in the Urus-Martan District with detainees and their parents, Instagram users noted that reprimanding conversations with persons detained on suspicion of drinking alcoholic beverages should be treated as inappropriate.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Valid Batsilov, the chief of the OVD (Interior Division) for the Urus-Martan District, held a preventive conversation with local residents "who were caught while using narcotic and psychotropic drugs, as well as driving vehicles being in a state of alcoholic intoxication." Parents of the offenders, whom law enforcers warned about responsibility for the behaviour of their children, promised to control them.

Chechen law enforcers regularly publicly reprimand local residents for offenses. In Chechnya, the use of alcoholic beverages is also condemned by the society. In fact, there is a dry law in the region.

Some Instagram users criticized the police chief. "Please, explain to them that no control is possible," wrote user gysein7665.

In their comments, other users considered it inappropriate to hold preventive conversations with offenders.
