Number of prisoners in Moscow pre-trial detention centers decreased by 1 thousand
According to the Federal Penitentiary Service’s latest information, at least 10.5 thousand people are held in Moscow pre-trial detention centers.
In 2017, the number of prisoners in Moscow pre-trial detention centers was reduced from 11.5 to 10.5 thousand people. This is reported by Head of the regional Federal Penitentiary Service Sergey Moroz.
According to him, last year, the service actively cooperated with the courts, the investigation, and the prosecutor's office, due to which this result was achieved. For example, Federal Penitentiary Service officers notify the ICR about those prisoners against whom no investigative measures are taken for a long time.
“So that the heads of investigative bodies find out whether such actions of their subordinates are justified,” Sergey Moroz explained.
