On the 4th February 2015 our colleague, DHRD confernce attendee and lawyer, 32-year old Murad Magomedov, was severely beaten by unknown attackers in Makhachkala.
This brutal assault occurred not far from the Supreme Court of the Republic of Dagestan, where Murad had been representing the interests of his client on a case (not related to Memorial HRC).
As Murad was leaving the building a gang of five men attacked him. Murad suffered severe head injuries and was hospitalised at the Republic’s Central Hospital. Unfortunately, due to his condition, Murad is not able to describe the details of the attack.
