Prisoner of St. Petersburg correctional camp No. 6 complains of being tasered
The man was tortured for refusing to communicate with an operational officer of the colony.
A prisoner of the St. Petersburg correctional camp No. 6 (IK-6) has reported on being tortured with a stun gun for refusing to communicate with an operational officer of the colony, the Public Monitoring Commission of the Leningrad Region reports via Telegram. Roman Shirshov, a PMC member, has filed a petition with the ICR.
According to the victim, the torture took place in the middle of March. The operational officer summoned him, wanting to find out the details of his conflict with other convicts. During the interrogation, the officer used a stun gun against the prisoner for about half an hour. At the same time, the prisoner was handcuffed to a chair. In addition, the officer kicked him in the face, the victim said.
After leaving the office, the convict slit his wrists. According to the PMC, an orderly had to stitch him up. Two weeks later, the convict was transferred to the Gaaz hospital. He returned to the colony by May 11.
Representatives of the St. Petersburg Federal Penitentiary Service said that after a check, the prisoner refused his words. At the same time, the convict himself knew nothing about the check. According to him, nobody has asked him about the incident. PMC members, who have talked to the prisoner, say that he was under pressure from the operational staff.
