Zareme Musaeva was denied a medical commission for 2 months


The management of the colony in Argun, Chechnya, has not conducted a medical examination for political prisoner Zarema Musaeva for more than two months, the “Command Against Torture” reported. This delays the consideration of the application for her parole.

As Kavkaz.Realii clarifies, in December, lawyer Alexander Savin sent a petition to the Shalin City Court to release Musaeva from custody due to her serious health condition. The convict was diagnosed with type 2 insulin-dependent diabetes and a number of chronic diseases. The Raisud refused to release Musaeva early, however, at the end of February, the Supreme Court of Chechnya overturned its decision.

According to the resolution of the plenum of the Supreme Court of the region, a medical commission was to be conducted for Musaeva and its results immediately submitted to the Shalyna court, Savin notes, but this has not yet happened. At the same time, according to him, in Musaeva’s medical card there is already an entry about the disease, which prevents the actual serving of the criminal sentence in the colony.

During these months, Musaeva took part in two court hearings and received a fine for not wearing a name badge on her clothes. In order to consider the complaint about the refusal of the UDO, it was staged from the colony-settlement to the Grozny pre-trial detention center and vice versa. She participated in the hearing on the appeal of the sentence via video link – due to health problems, the court allowed her not to get up. According to Savin, Musaeva needs medical rehabilitation.

  • Three of Musaeva’s sons – the Yangulbaev brothers – criticized Ramzan Kadyrov’s regime, and their father Sayda Yangulbaev refused to publicly condemn his sons’ activities. Now all of them are not in Russia.
  • Musaeva was forcibly taken from Nizhny Novgorod to Chechnya in January 2022. In Grozny, she was first sentenced to 15 days of administrative arrest on charges of insulting a policeman, and then a criminal case was opened against her: she allegedly attacked the precinct officer who was compiling the report and, according to the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, “almost left his eye.” Musaeva was later charged with fraud.
  • Kadyrov threatened the Yangulbaev family with reprisals the next day after Musaeva’s abduction. On February 2, 2022, a rally was held in the center of Grozny against the Yangulbaev family – their portraits were burned, trampled and torn.
  • In July 2023, Zarema Musaev was sentenced to five and a half years in a general regime prison in the case of fraud and violence against a policeman, the Supreme Court of Chechnya reduced the sentence to five years in a penal colony in September.
  • The human rights project “Support of political prisoners. Memorial” recognized Zarem Musaev as a political prisoner. In early October, the European Parliament adopted a resolution in which it sharply condemned the abduction and politically motivated imprisonment of Zarema Musaeva.
