WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Amnesty International is calling on Poland not to deport a Chechen video blogger and critic of Chechen authorities who is being sought by Russia.

The human rights group says that if Tumsu Abdurakhamanov is returned to Russia he will be "at a very real risk of torture and other inhuman or degrading treatment."

That appeal was made in a letter sent last week to the Polish Interior Minister Joachim Brudzinski which was shared with The Associated Press on Monday.

The letter called on Polish authorities not to deport him and to grant him protection in accordance with obligations under international human rights law.

In August, another Chechen refugee, Azamat Bayduev, was deported from Poland. A day later, Bayduev was arrested and hasn't been heard from since.
