The Supreme Court of the Chechen Republic has ruled Oyub Titiyev is to remain in custody till 9 March 2018, rejecting Titiyev’s appeal.

A district court in the town of Shali sanctioned Titiyev’s arrest on 11 January. Oyub Titiyev, who heads the Chechen office of the Memorial Human Rights Centre, was detained on 9 January on drug charges. Titiyev has repeatedly denied the charges saying the evidence against him was fabricated.
