Urgent Action Update: Sentencing of Two Young Men Upheld (Russian Federation: UA 48.19)

December 13, 2019

On 10 December, a court of appeal upheld the conviction of human rights defenders from Rostov-on-Don, Yan Sidorov and Vladislav Mordasov, and confirmed their sentence to over six years in prison each. They are prisoners of conscience and must be released immediately and unconditionally. The conviction should be quashed, and their allegations of torture and other ill-treatment effectively investigated.

We have received updated information regarding this case and require no further action from the Urgent Action Network. Thank you to all those who sent appeals. For more information about this case, please see the Word/PDF attachments below or emailĀ [email protected]. ADDITIONAL RESOURCES
