Kazakhstan: Human rights activist beaten and arrested

HUMAN RIGHTS campaigner and lawyer Vadim Kuramshina was violently attacked and arrested last week in Kokchetava, northern Kazakhstan.

Vadim was just leaving to meet up with Joe Higgins, Member of the European Parliament for the Socialist Party (CWI, Ireland), arriving on a visit.

Vadim, with a group of former prisoners, had been in Kokchetava to make a film about torture in the prison colonies. He has had brutal experience himself inside Kazakhstan's torture-ridden prisons.

Recently, Vadim had received several anonymous calls claiming to be from representatives of the ordinary police and political police in which he was threatened with "inconvenience".
