Goity, RUSSIA, 2011 - On March 25th 2003 a group of 20 soldiers forcibly entered the Betaev's family house in Goity. The family caught unaware was startled from their sleep when their front door was kicked in. The men threw Isa Betaev and his wife to the floor then detailed a guard to keep them there at gunpoint. Their sons; Ibrahim; 22; and Leche; 21; were dragged into the street; stripped; and thrown into an APC. Isa repeatedly filed a case for investigation at the Goity prosecution office. The investigation was dropped due to lack of evidence. In 2008 the European Justice Initiative in Strasbourg found the Russian military guilty of the kidnapping and murderer of the Betaev brothers.
