“Where are you deporting me, to Mars?” Vor Gishasho expelled
The thief in law got a lifetime entry ban.
Just before the thief in law Georgy Mukbaniani (Gishasho) was released from jail, he was told that his stay in Russia was undesirable. Law enforcers videotaped their conversation with him in a Krasnoyarsk prison.
First, he is asked to introduce himself. When asked about his criminal record, the vor says that his previous sentence has been served, and the one he is serving now is for robbery (part 2 of Art. 161).
The next question is whether he is a thief in law. Gishasho chuckles and says, “why these questions, when you know it all”.
After that, they read the resolution to him made by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation on November 8, 2018 that said his stay in Russia was undesirable. Under Art. 25.10 of the Federal Law "On the procedure for leaving and entering the Russian Federation," the official said, "You must leave Russia immediately after being released from prison. Otherwise, you are subject to deportation. "
To this, Mukbanani says that he is a stateless person.
“Where are you deporting me, to Mars?” he says laughing.
Law enforcers say an arrest warrant may come for him, from Georgia or somewhere else.
Then he is informed that if he leaves Russia and then enters it again, the law on “illegal border crossing” will be applied to the vor. He states he understands.
“The ban on entry into Russia is for life.”
“Who signed it?”
“Well, what can I say.”
Finally, he was asked where he was going to go for treatment after his release, perhaps to Israel, Georgia or Turkey?
Gishasho speaks of serious health issues he has. “I must have an urgent liver transplant, but where can I go if I don’t have any papers?”, the thief laments.
True, that he looks exhausted on the video. In the spring, it was reported that the vor is under a lot of pressure from the administrations of various Krasnoyarsk correctional institutions, where he is serving his sentence.
After being detained in 2014 and getting a 5-year term, Gishasho was first sent to Minusinsk prison, where he was mostly kept in the infirmary. They would put inmates cooperating with the administration in his cell, who provoked him to fights. If it came to clashes, then Mukbaniani was moved to a Krasnoyarsk SIZO-1, where he was again put in cells of the ‘A-team’ and provoked to fights. In addition, on the way from Minusinsk to Krasnoyarsk and back, Gishasho is taken to the Achinsk detention center, where the same thing happens.
Larisa Zakharova, the lawyer of the Foundation In Defense of the Rights of Prisoners, noted that the Krasnoyarsk FSIN staff used the move scheme to exert psychological pressure on convicts and to make them do what they want them to do.
There are other ways they put pressure on criminals, for instance, they unlawfully cancel their daily walks, take their books from them, including the Bible.
Last year, the thief in law even went on a dry hunger strike and ended up in the prison infirmary. However, even there, according to a Rosbalt source, his cellmates were collaborating with the administration.
At the end of last year, Mukbaniani was put in the Yeniseisk prison, where he was first placed in an insulator, and then the usual scheme was employed: he was put in a cell with first-timers, who were behaving improperly, constantly creating conflict situations.
This led to Mukbaniani being taken to hospital with broken ribs in February.
It should be noted that Krasnoyarsk prisons are notorious for their tough treatment of prisoners, illegal at times, and especially harsh treatment of thieves in law.
Six months ago, no one could predict the state of the MIA General Administration for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region by the time of the forthcoming elections. After the appointment of Moscow general Roman Plugin in charge of it, the St. Petersburg police has undergone significant changes. Major general of justice Oleg Antropov, Head of the Main Investigations Directorate, is ‘the last man standing’ from the old command of the MIA General Administration. Most probably, he is going to become the next victim of ‘janitor’ Plugin.
