Rallying for the rights and freedom of a noted human rights defender.
(SALEM) - Vadim Kuramshin is a well-known lawyer and defender of the rights of prisoners in Kazakhstan.
It was the last day in October when police busted into the home of Vadim Kuramshin was arrested him in Petropavlovsk, northern Kazakhstan. They had no warrant or proper authority to conduct this arrest we are told.
During the arrest Mr. Kuramshin was beaten and then subjected to a favorite trick of crooked jailers and guards; two men were placed in his cell who immediately began issuing threats toward this distinguished human rights defender and attorney.
When the victim protested the treatment he was receiving inside of his cell, the prison guards reacted by threatening to place Vadim Kuramshin and the two unknown cellmates in the “sauna”, which usually implies a threat of sexual violence or rape.
