Extract of the Amnesty International report, concerning the Chechnya Human Rights situation
In the disputed region of Abkhazia, a de facto moratorium
on executions remained in force. At least 25 death sentences had been passed
since it declared independence from Georgia. Nine death row prisoners escaped
from the investigation-isolation prison in Sukhumi in April. Some were recaptured;
one died in his cell on 15 June.
