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.
Russian activist kidnapped, beaten and threatened with death of family in Ingushetia: authorities remain inactive
October 5, Amnesty International employee Oleg Kozlovsky came to study and cover protests in Magas. On that day, the man could not even imagine that literally in a day he, naked and beaten, would be at gunpoint in a deserted field of Ingushetia. It has been more than a month since Oleg appealed to the Investigative Committee with a statement, but the authorities are inactive – Kozlovsky was not even called in for questioning. The CrimeRussia delved into the details of this case.
