Disabled Anton Mamaev won't be released until conviction enters into force
Anton Mamaev, a disabled person of group I sentenced to 4.5 years for robbery, has undergone health examination.
According to medical experts, the man can not be held in remand center due to the state of health. At the same time, he will not be released until the judicial sentence is brought into legal force.
As noted by a representative of the Moscow Public Monitoring Commission Vadim Gorshenin, doctors have examined Mamaev and come to the conclusion that he could not be kept in a pre-trial detention center. However, since the Moscow Prosecutor’s Office had appealed against the sentence imposed by the court, and the appeal has yet to be considered, no one has the authority to release the man.
Vadim Gorshenin also stressed that the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia does not have the conditions to hold a disabled person of group I in its institutions.
He also added that the existing situation would be resolved quickly if the court took into account the opinion of the public and considered the appeal of the prosecutor's office in a short time. “Bureaucratic red tape is traditionally present in courts, and because of this, the case may drag on,” he said.
To recall, as previously reported by the CrimeRussia, Anton Mamaev has complete muscle atrophy. June 30, the court has found him guilty of armed robbery and theft of a motor scooter. After the verdict was announced, Mamaev was sent to the detention center Matrosskaya Tishina.
Later, he was transferred from the pre-trial detention center to the city hospital No. 20 for medical examination.
