New case over beating of prisoner Yevgeny Makarov in Yaroslavl colony initiated
This time, a criminal case was initiated over the beating of the prisoner after transferring of the prisoner from IK-1 to IK-8 in December 2017.
A new criminal case has been opened in Yaroslavl over the beating of prisoner Yevgeny Makarov, the Public Verdict human rights organization reports.
The new case was initiated out of the beating of Makarov after the transfer from IK-1 to IK-8 in December 2017. The staff of the colony beat the prisoner, and he deliberately hit his head when they wanted to dip him in the toilet. The Public Verdict organization stressed that the leadership of the colony tried to hide information about what had happened.
Human rights activists appealed to the regional department of the FSIN, the Prosecutor's Office of the region and the city, but they did not receive any replies. After that, they appealed to the European Court of Human Rights, which obliged the Russian authorities to conduct an independent medical examination of the convict.
In July, Novaya Gazeta published footage from the IK-1 in the Yaroslavl region, where Makarov was tortured and beaten with rubber batons. After this, a criminal case was initiated against the employees.
