Practice Relating to Rule 124. ICRC Access to Persons Deprived of Their Liberty
In May 2000, visits to detainees in Northern Caucasus began after the ICRC received formal authorization from the President of the Russian Federation granting access to “all persons held in connection with security operations” in Chechnya. The ICRC carried out visits to detainees held under the responsibility of the Ministries of Justice and the Interior and the Federal Security Service.
