Arashukov Sr. admits to having hard time without hairdresser in Lefortovo jail
The father of the ex-senator would like to get a haircut.
Raul Arashukov, a businessman and the father of former Senator Rauf Arashukov, who is currently in the Lefortovo jail, complained that he hadn’t been able to get a haircut for a month. According to the man, the administration does not give out hair clippers to prisoners, and there is no hairdresser in the detention center. Ivan Melnikov, the secretary of the Public Monitoring Commission of Moscow, told journalists about Arashukov Sr.’s complaints.
“The PMC visited Lefortovo. Ziyavudin Magomedov of Summa Group and Raul Arashukov asked for a hair clipper,” Melnikov told RIA Novosti.
According to him, all hair clippers in the detention center have become unusable. Previously, a hairdresser in the economic support detachment used to cut prisoners’ hair, but there is no one to do that now.
Melnikov added that the practice of giving out hair clippers used to exist - at least, when the PMC last visit the jail, the prisoners were still able to get the tools.
“If a clipper broke down, you can’t purchase it in the prison stall, and it’s also impossible to bring from the outside world, because prisoners cannot have it,” Melnikov said.
He added that the PMC offered the tools for free, as a humanitarian aid, but the management of Lefortovo refused, since it was planned to purchase them with budget money.
As The CrimeRussia reported earlier, Rauf Arashukov is charged with participation in a criminal community, two murders and pressure on a witness. The ex-senator denies any wrongdoing.
Raul Arashukov is accused of committing crimes under part 3 of Art. 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (creating a criminal community using official position) and part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (swindling). According to the case file, he was involved in the theft of natural gas at PJSC Gazprom that lasted for years and amounted to more than 30 billion rubles.
Presumably, it concerns the US response to Ukraine’s help in the investigation against Joseph Biden, Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, who allegedly was in collusion with Kiev during the previous campaign.
