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.
Fake citizenship and access to state secrets. Former Ukrainian officials get supreme posts in Crimea
More and more questions arise with regards to the staffing policy of the Crimean authorities. This summer, Roman Podsudevsky has been appointed in charge of the Yalta Commercial Port – a strategic objective. The former Ukrainian border guard officer wanted at home for divulgence of state secrets and corruption easily gained the Russian citizenship and made a successful career in Crimea. In March 2017, he was a senior security specialist in Genbank; in the same period, he attempted to become the Head of Shchelkino Municipal Administration but lost in the competition; and since December 2017, Podsudevsky became an aide to Sergei Aksenov. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how former Ukrainian enforcement officers and officials become supreme functionaries in Crimea.
Three officers of the Moscow FSB office, detained in June 2017, are defendants in the criminal case heard by the Moscow Garrison Military Court along with the retired MIA Major-General Viktor Trutnev. The official prosecution asked 7 and eight years’ imprisonment for them.
