In the Moscow SIZO Lefortovo, tables were removed from the cells, which prisoners used, among other things, for eating. About it reported lawyer Mikhail Karapetyan representing the interests of the former governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Sergey Furgal.
According to the lawyer, now the inmates in the pre-trial detention center have to eat on their knees.
“After the prosecutor’s check, the employees of the pre-trial detention center unscrewed all the tables in the cells where the accused are kept. Sergei Ivanovich takes food literally on his knees. I hope that prudence will prevail and everything will return to normal, ”said Karapetyan.
Formerly Secretary of the Public Monitoring Commission of Moscow Alexey Melnikov statedthat the Lefortovo administration introduced a ban on daytime sleep.
“This is an incomprehensible decision, most importantly, it is unclear how it will be controlled. They were not forbidden to lie on the bed and even close their eyes. There are questions about this innovation, we will try to find out where it came from, ”Melnikov said.
The human rights activist also noted that Furgal and other inmates complained that the news on the radio was stopped in the isolation ward.
According to Melnikov, prisoners are also prohibited from taking drinking water with them for a walk.
