Nurdi Nukhajiev, Chechnya's government-appointed representative for human rights, deliciously uses the Catherine Tramell defence (search for "she's going to say") while arguing that the Russians didn't have a torture cell in Grozny: "I am not saying that angels served there [in the cells]. "I am not saying that the people [policemen] were ideal individuals. But this is 2006 and they weren't so stupid as to leave evidence of torture and murder behind." A fantastic, sinister response.
