He will be sent to Smolensk.

Ismail Nalgiev, a blogger and journalist from Ingushetia, will be expelled from Belarus. The corresponding decision has been taken by the department of citizenship and migration of the Kastrychnitski district police department of Minsk.

Radio Svaboda reports that the lawyer Ismail Nalgiyev was informed about this in the detention center in Akrestsin street, where he had come to familiarize himself with the defendant’s administrative case in the morning of May 10.

“Now the lawyer is making a complaint against the decision of the department of citizenship and migration of the Kastrychnitski district police department to suspend the expulsion of Nalgiev to Russia,” Aleh Aheyeu, a lawyer of the Viasna human rights center, who helps the activist from Ingushetia, said. – It is obvious to human rights defenders that torture might threaten him there, in which case the Belarusian law does not allow extradition. A number of human rights organizations in Belarus have already made a joint statement in defense of Ismail Nalgiev. ”

Ismail Nalgiev, an activist from Ingushetia, was detained at the airport Minsk-2 an hour before departure to Europe on May 8. According to Viasna, the Belarusian police contacted the initiators of the search in Ingushetia, who asked to bring Nalgiev to Smolensk, where an Ingush police officer was waiting.

Ismail Nalgiev is the head of the Russian public organization “Choice of Ingushetia”. According to Russian media reports, Ismail Nalgiev took part in recent protests in Ingushetia. These protests have been going on since the fall of 2018.

A rally of activists in the town of Magas was brutally dispersed by security forces on March 26-27.
