Court in Chechnya banishes human rights activist to penal colony

A court in Chechnya sentenced Oyub Titiev, a prominent human rights activist, to four years in a penal settlement on Monday after finding him guilty of possessing illegal drugs. Titiev was detained in January last year by police who said they had found around 200 grams of cannabis in his car. Titiev claims the drugs were planted.
