Law enforcers hand Taramova over to her family by deceit

Khalimat Taramova, a resident of Chechnya, refused to leave the apartment for victims of domestic violence in Makhachkala with her father; and then she and her girl friend were persuaded to get into a car, promising to take them to a safe place. However, both residents of the shelter were brought to the building of the Dagestan Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA), where Taramova was given to her relatives, the journalist, Svetlana Anokhina, has informed.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on June 10, Dagestani law enforcers with their colleagues from Chechnya came to the Makhachkala shelter, an apartment for victims of domestic violence, and detained the "Marem" project staff and Khalimat Taramova, a daughter of Ramzan Kadyrov's close associate, who had fled from her relatives because of beatings. Law enforcers took Khalimat home to Chechnya.

The detentions were conducted with the use of force, Svetlana Anokhina told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent. "Late at night they began breaking into the apartment through the door; they didn't show any documents. When we opened the door, agents appeared from all directions – from the elevator, and from upper and lower floors. There were a huge number of them ... We sent the girls for whom they came to the farthest room. We were dragged down the stairs one by one," she said.

"After we were taken away, Khalimat's father entered the apartment; but she refused to go out with him. Then a man walked in and convinced the girls that he could take them to a safe place. They believed him and went out into the yard together, walked past about a hundred people who had gathered by this time in the yard, and got into a car. But they were brought to the building of the Dagestani MIA," Svetlana Anokhina has continued. According to her story, at the MIA, Taramova was persuaded to write a statement that she had been held in the crisis apartment by force, but she refused to do this and asked not to give her away to those who had arrived. "As a result, she was taken out into the yard of the MIA building and handed over to her relatives," Ms Anokhina has concluded.
