Head of Lipetsk colony caught taking bribe from prisoner
In the Lipetsk region, a colony employee has been accused of bribe-taking from a prisoner.
The court found the evidence collected by the regional investigative authorities sufficient to arrive at a guilty verdict for the head of the Correctional Camp FSI no. 2 of the Federal Penitentiary Service for the Lipetsk region. After reviewing the evidence provided by investigation, the court found the colony officer guilty of bribe-taking (part. 3 of Art. 290 of the Russian Criminal Code).
During the investigation and subsequent trial, experts found that the head of public utilities, quartermaster and economic support of the Correctional Camp no. 2 had received 15 thousand rubles as a bribe from a prisoner. In exchange for the financial "reward", he gave three mobile phones to the latter. However, phone use by inmates is prohibited in the colony.
As noted by the regional ICR, the colony officer fully admitted his guilt as early as during the preliminary investigation. He provided a detailed description of the offense committed.
The court sentenced him to a state fine of 600 thousand rubles and banned from holding certain positions in state institutions for one year.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
