The investigation established all those who participated in the beating of the prisoner.

Six people were detained in the case of torture in Yaroslavl IK-1, the press service of the Investigative Committee for the region stated on Monday.

As the department specifies, the investigation established the identity of all the employees involved in the beating of the prisoner, however, their names are not disclosed. Shortly, the ICR intends to petition for the arrest of detainees.

Also, searches and seizure of documents were carried out in the framework of the investigation in IK-1.

Earlier it became known that 17 employees of the colony were suspended from duty. The case was initiated under the article of abuse of authority with the use of violence after Novaya Gazeta published a 10-minute video. The guards of the Yaroslavl colony ‘crucified’ and beat prisoner Evgeny Makarov. The incident occurred on June 29 last year, but then the ICR did not find corpus delicti for initiating a criminal case, despite the appeals of Makarov’s lawyer.
