Moscow debt collectors threaten school principal out of pupils' parents due
Unknown demanded to exclude children and convince their family to repay the loan.
Collectors threatened the principal of one of the schools in Moscow with reprisals against her relatives if she did not help to force the student’s parents to repay the loan debt. Unknown called the telephone number of the school and the director’s personal number. It is reported by the press service of the Interior Ministry in the capital.
According to RT, we are talking about school No 1285. Director Yaroslava Alpatova was demanded to exclude children of debtors from school and to influence them in other ways. State Duma Deputy Anna Kuvychko asked the Central Bank and the Prosecutor's Office to investigate the situation.
The police initiated a criminal case on the grounds of the Threat of Murder or the Infliction of Grievous Bodily Harm (Article 119 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
