Prisoners of Kamchatka colony got winter clothes only after prosecutor's check
The prisoners of a colony in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky were wearing summer hats up until the first snow.
The Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in the Kamchatka region has announced the full provision of prisoners of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky correctional camp No. 3 with clothing in accordance with seasonal temperatures. This is reported on the service’s website.
Earlier this week, Acting Prosecutor Anatoly Shcherbakov paid a visit to the colony to check the legality of the application of penalties and the detention of convicts in accordance with strict conditions of serving punishment. He noted that three prisoners were wearing summer hats during a walk, even though the Kamchatka region is subject to cyclones. According to the local publication Kam 24, the day after his visit, it was finally snowing and the wind grew stronger in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
By October 29, the violations were eliminated. "We hereby announce that all convicts have been fully provided with the necessary clothes," the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia stressed.
The prosecutor also noted that the clubhouse for convicts does not comply with sanitary norms and requires repair. However, no reaction from the Federal Penitentiary Service followed.
TV broadcaster Dmitry Guberniev reported that on December 12, law enforcement officers came to the hotel where members of the Russian national team were settled in before the start of the second stage of the World Championship.
