Thanks to the assistance of Commissioner for Human Rights in the Republic of Ingushetia Dzhambulat Ozdoev it was possible to restore the victim’s rights.
The regional Commissioner received an appeal from citizen of Nazran O. with a request to restore his right to reparation of material damage.
In November 2016, next door to the applicant’s home, law enforcement officers carried out investigative operations to locate persons involved in terrorist activities. As a result of a special operation, the main house and the outbuildings of citizen O. were considerably damaged.
Representatives of the local administration drafted an act on causing material damage, a criminal case was initiated on this fact, under which O. was recognized as a victim.
The applicant asked the regional Commissioner for assistance in obtaining material compensation for the damaged property. Having requested the administration of Nazran, he received a reply that compensation payments are not provided in such cases.
Having familiarized himself with the materials provided, Dzhambulat Ozdoev held a number of meetings with local authorities’ representatives of Nazran, law enforcement agencies and the Office of the Republic of Ingushetia on the Protection of Population and Territories against Emergency Situations. With the participation of the victim, an agreement on the compensation for the damage sustained was reached.
