Court in Dagestan extends Gadjiev's arrest
The Southern District Military Court has left Abdulmumin Gadjiev, a journalist of the "Chernovik" (Draft) portal, accused of financing terrorism, in custody for other three months. Gadjiev had condemned terrorism and never called in his publications to abandon the secular lifestyle, Ziyautdin Uvaisov, a human rights defender, asserts.
Ziyautdin Uvaisov, who is one of the defence witnesses, told the court that Gadjiev was an opponent of terrorist organizations, while his publications called for observing the laws in force in the country.
Dagestani journalists are regularly holding pickets in Makhachkala in support of Abdulmumin Gadjiev. On April 18, two solo pickets were held and faced an approving reaction of Makhachkala townspeople.
