Vyacheslav Gaizer not allowed to see his children
December 2, the Basmanny Court of Moscow did not satisfy the complaint filed by former Head of Komi Republic Vyacheslav Gaizer against the investigation's refusal to allow the visit of his son and daughter, whom he had not seen since September 2015.
Vyacheslav Gaizer's lawyer Leontyev applied for permission of family visits, to which the prisoner is formally entitled under the law.
In reality, for the time spent in the detention center, the former head of Komi Republic has been allowed only one visit, from his mother.
However, the investigation felt it inappropriate to allow visits, since this "could negatively affect the progress and results of the preliminary investigation."
Let us recall that former Head of Komi Republic Vyacheslav Gaizer was arrested on September 20, 2015. He was charged with organizing OCC and abuse of authority. 14 more ex-deputies and businessmen from Komi were arrested in this case along with him.
The capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) faces mass protests provoked by the rape of a local woman by a migrant worker from Kyrgyzstan. The criminal was promptly detained. However, the protests turned into riots and attacks on the natives of Central Asia. Representatives of the regional authorities supported the protesters, voicing anti-migrant statements. In Yakutsk, some outlets are closed, and transport communication is partially interrupted. A delegation from Kyrgyzstan arrived to defuse the conflict, but xenophobic sentiments are gaining momentum. Local security officials argue that the situation is under control, and detain violators promptly. Is it revenge for the victim or a surge of Yakut nationalism? The CrimeRussia restored the chronology of events and tried to find out what is happening in Yakutia.
