Cape Town – A Swaziland gay student who was reportedly
tortured by homophobes in Russia is back home, with a report saying a video of
his torture, which was placed online, had gone viral.
According to an iol report, the student who was studying at
Shukhov State Technological University in Belgorod suffered a lot of trauma and
his mother said he didn’t want to be disturbed.
The student’s ordeal started when he was lured to a flat by
his “tormentors” through a fake internet exchange convincing him he would meet
a 15-year-old young man for a date.
On his arrival at the apartment he was allegedly attacked by
the Russian anti-gay vigilante group Occupy Paedophilia.
The report said the video shows a clearly terrified young
man being verbally and physically abused by his tormentors who also also mocked
his skin colour and made him stimulate fellatio with a bottle.
An arrest warrant has since been issued for Maxim
Martsinkevich, the leader of the group, the report said.
