Miscarriage of justice: an update on the ongoing trial of Oyub Titiev

Miscarriage of justice: an update on the ongoing trial of Oyub Titiev
Miscarriage of justice: an update on the ongoing trial of Oyub Titiev

Oyub Titiev, the head of Memorial Human Rights Centre’s Chechnya office, has been in custody since 9 January 2018. He has reiterated his innocence on multiple occasions and has been acknowledged as a prisoner of conscience and a political prisoner by dozens of national and international human rights organizations.

Since the last update published in October 2018, the court case against Oyub Titiev has been marred by falsified evidence and serious fair trial violations. The judge has systematically denied all motions by Titiev’s lawyer to call defence witnesses.

This update covers the court proceedings between 12 November 2018 and 12 February 2019. The next court hearing is planned in March 2019, and if convicted he will face from three to 10 years’ imprisonment.
