FREEDOM FOR MARTIN KOCHESOKO NOW!

Martin Kochesoko, the head of “Khabze”- a non-governmental organization in the Kabardino-Balkaria Republic of the Russian Federation, was detained on the allegation of “possession of drugs” on June 7, 2019. The uncertain judicial process after detention has raised a deep concern about Martin’s fate.

For a long time in Russian Federation, it is commonplace for law enforcement officers to charge activists and opponents with offenses. The number of victims of such false accusations of drug abuse is increasing day by day.

In the not too distant past, as the entire human rights community is fully aware that journalist Zhalaudi Geriev and Oyub Titiyev, a human rights activist working in Chechnya, were charged with the same method and have been imprisoned for false charges. Geriev was released after three years in prison. Titiev was condemned to four years in prison in March 2018 and is currently in custody.

In the same way as Martin Kochesoko, a similar criminal case was opened against Ivan Golunov, a reporter on Medusa online news portal. However, as a result of intense protests against the Golunov case, the Russian Interior Ministry had to withdraw the accusation and release the journalist. A detailed investigation was conducted due to the claim that the evidence was subsequently placed.

Simply, there is no difference between previous examples and the process of Martin Kochesoko, who struggled to protect the Circassian national identity in a democratic way. We believe that an idealist who has become public knowledge with his activist movements is subjected to oppression and persecution only for political reasons and paranoia of administrative mechanisms.

The “Khabze” organization, the president of which is the victim of the above-mentioned false accusation, Martin Kochesoko, is one of the organizers of the event commemorating the end of the Russian-Caucasian Wars and the great exile in 1864, held every year on May 21. At the end of May, Kochesoko attended the roundtable meeting in Nalchik, where Russian federalism was discussed. Also, he was one of the participants of the “Democratic Congress of Peoples of Russia”, which was held in Moscow and he discussed the problems of federalism.

At the time, Kochesoko’s family was visited and warned by some members of the local government. His family was threatened that Martin would be in trouble “if he did not slow down”.

Consedering all these past incidents, to consider Martin’s case as a respectable legal process does not correspond to the realities of Russia and the Caucasus. The attainment of civilized humanity, international law, and international treaties that are expected to protect people against the enforcement of the states, still cannot exceed the bloody and barbed wires that extend along the borders of the Russian Federation. Martin Kochesoko and civil rights defenders like him, who have become vulnerable targets of repression, need the support of the free world.

The undersigned, who follow the Martin Kochesoko case closely, see that the gap between the essential human rights and the rights actually owned by people in Russian Federation is deepening. We want an end to this crime-making practice which has become a standardized practice.

From the point of fundamental human rights and freedoms, we call on the international community to take a strong stand against the intense pressure on civil activists and to support attempts towards immediate release of Circassian activist Martin Kochesko, who has been unlawfully detained.

FREEDOM FOR MARTIN KOCHESOKO NOW!
