Convict will have to pay $1.8k for his prison stay
The corresponding court decision will come into force shortly.
In Oryol, the Court decided to recover money from the former convict spent during his stay in prison. The applicant is Colony No. 3 of the Kursk region. The reason for recovering money was the convict’s unwillingness to work.
It is reported that the defendant served 10 years in prison. The suit also states that all this time, the colony administration provided the convict with food, clothes, and means of personal hygiene. The Federal Penitentiary Service Directorate estimated that the total expenses amounted to 120 thousand rubles ($1.8 thousand). Representatives of the agency also emphasize that the convicted person is not a person with Group I or II disability. However, he would respond with a refusal to the administration’s offer to work.
The court decision to recover money from the convict will come into force shortly. It is not reported whether the defendant will challenge it.
