Authorities in Russia’s Republic of Ingushetia are preparing a new criminal case against the independent internet portal, Ingushetiya.Ru (now Ingushetia.ORG).
The republic’s public prosecutor, Yuri Turygin, has asked the police to investigate who posted the results of the independent inquiry into the death of Magomed Yevloyev, the website’s former owner.
Turygin insisted Ingushetiya.Ru endangered the lives of the civil servants and law enforcement officials accused of involvement in Yevloyev’s killing by publishing their names.
Ingushetia.ORG asks if those responsible for publishing the names of the accused will meet the same fate as Magomed Yevloyev: an “accidental” bullet in the head. “You keep looking, we’ll keep working!” the website says.
