I have blogged before about the incredible life and sad death of Anna Politkovskaya. I finished that blog by stating that unless we stood up and demanded justice and a full investigation into hers, and all other journalists and human rights defenders deaths and attacks this would continue to happen.
On the 25th October Makasharip Aushev, a civil society activist was shot dead in his car in the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria in the North Caucasus. He was a member of the Russian Federation’s Human Rights Ombudsman expert council on the North Caucasus. He known best however, for running the opposition web-site www.ingushetia.org.
How much longer will the EU sit by and let its neighbours allow attacks on individuals who wish to carry out peaceful and legal activities?
