US authorities deprived Viktor Bout of right to meet and make calls for two months
The Russian is not allowed to talk on the phone with anyone other than Russian diplomats and a lawyer.
Russian Viktor Bout was found partly guilty of violating the regime of detention in Marion Prison (Illinois) and is deprived of the right to speak by phone to all but Russian diplomats and a lawyer for two months. TASS was informed about this by defender of the Russian Alexey Tarasov.
"The hearing took place today, literally one hour ago, he was found guilty of an offense, however, the guilt is partial because he did not choose with whom to talk," he said. "The punishment is expressed in depriving him of the opportunity to talk on the phone, to use prison shop and spend visits with relatives for two months. He is also deprived of a 15-day discount for exemplary behavior."
Bout has been punished for the second time for violating the rules of detention in the Marion Prison.
The mentioned telephone conversation for the purpose of interviewing was approved by the prison administration and was held on May 5. As the lawyer explained, an RT employee who telephoned Bout on the phone handed the mobile phone to a colleague who was not on the list of persons whom the US authorities allowed to contact the Russian. In Marion, this is equated with a disciplinary violation.
Viktor Bout was detained in 2008 in Bangkok on the basis of a warrant issued by a local court at the request of the United States. He was accused of illegal arms deliveries to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia group, which is considered a terrorist organization in the United States. In 2010, Bout was extradited to the United States. In April 2012, he was sentenced to 25 years in prison and a fine of $15 million.
