Public monitoring committee: 7 inmates stitch up their mouths in Yakutia-based colony
The inmates have done it as a mark of protest against poor incarceration conditions.
7 inmates of a correctional facility №1 in Yakutsk have stitched up their mouths protesting against poor incarceration conditions, reports Mediazone with reference to a representative of the local public monitoring committee Marina Semenova.
In her words, it is about the inmates that had been placed in the punitive confinement. They stitched up their mouths the day before yesterday, on December 4. Today, the committee’s representatives visited the colony - 4 of the protesters remained with their mouths stitched up.
The representative of the public monitoring committee notes that temperatures in Yakutsk can fall to minus 50 degrees (according to Gismeteo, it was minus 35 on December 6). With that, the inmates don’t have winter clothes. The colony’s employees state there’s a lack of clothing sets. Moreover, it is extremely cold in the punitive confinement, and there’s no hot water and futons, so the inmates have to sleep on a cold floor.
The inmates place in the punitive confinement also reported about beating by the colony’s employees.
According to Semenova, the counsellor for control of legal compliance in correctional facilities has visited the colony today. The public monitoring committee’s representative added that the inmates stated they would slash their wrists, in case the situation is not improved.
Redistribution on Ai-Petri plateau: demolition of facilities worth 1 billion, no compensation, and arm of Sberbank
One and a half years after the demolition of Tatar cafes on the Ai-Petri plateau, their owners are trying to sue the promised compensation from the Crimean government, but to no avail: the courts make decisions not in favor of them. They did not get the promised new land for business either. And all because in May 2017 a banal replotting and destruction of a cluster of small and medium-sized businesses was carried out on Ai-Petri. But cafes and retail outlets still function there: also with a national flavor, but different already. The CrimeRussia tried to figure out who and why demolished some joints for the sake of building by others, and how in the near future they plan to use the mountain pearl.
Earlier, it was reported that the head of the Shali district of Chechnya, Turpal-Ali Ibragimov, Ramzan Kadyrov’s cousin, was responsible for the accident with two dead. Now the republican MIA officially declares that Ibragimov’s second cousin was driving.
