Сriminal сase initiated against colony staff that let prisoner escape
After the convict fled, he immediately attacked and robbed the local woman.
In Zelenograd, a criminal case is initiated against the employees of the colony-settlement, from which the prisoner escaped on November 15, 2017. The case against employees is initiated under Article 286 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Exceeding Official Powers).
The accident took place on November 15. On this day, according to investigators, the on-duty assistant to the head of the colony-settlement No. 2 and other unidentified employees of the institution released prisoner Alexey Zabelo, who was convicted for theft. Employees of the FSIN perfectly knew that Zabelo was not included in the list of prisoners that work outside the colony, but he was released. According to some reports, Zabelo was sent out to buy bread for the needs of the settlement in SIZO-12, located on the same territory.
"Knowing that Alexey Zabelo, convicted for theft, is not included in the list of convicts that work outside the colony, they allowed the man to go beyond the colony," the source familiar with the situation said.
Released prisoner took advantage of the opportunity. He escaped and disappeared in the Safonovo district of the Smolensk region. Zabelo attacked a local woman and robbed her. The damage amounted to 14.2 thousand rubles ($251).
The latest publications announced that police officers were actively searching for a prisoner, so that whether they were able to catch him remains unknown.
