No lawyers allowed to Colonel Zakharchenko
Dmitry Zakharchenko described the living conditions in Lefortovo pre-trial detention center to members of the Moscow Public Monitoring Commission.
Dmitry Zakharchenko, the Acting Head of the Department T of the MIA Main Directorate for Economic Safety and Counteracting Corruption told the PMC members that it had been a few days that his lawyers had not been let in. Besides, the senior police officer said that he could not contact his wife to ask her to bring medicine and food.
The Colonel spoke about conditions of his detention: he sleeps in a quilted jacket, because it gets very cold in the jail; he passes his time reading Sholokhov.
A PMC member Zoya Svetova noted the arrested seemed somewhat elated. The anti-corruption advocate is said to be expecting an appeal at the Moscow City Court. At the same time he fears the case will be pressed by those, who Zakharchenko accuses of fabricating the criminal proceedings against him.
Earlier, the Deputy Head of the anti-corruption department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was detained on suspicion of taking multimillion-ruble bribes. In his sister's apartment law enforcement officers found 8.5 billion rubles. The Colonel denies his guilt, claiming he knows, who initiated the criminal case against him.
