Andrey Shchugorev has been appointed the new head of the Department of Internal Security of the Federal Penitentiary Service. About it informs Znak.com, citing two law enforcement sources.
According to the publication, Shchugorev previously served as deputy head of the Main Directorate of Internal Security of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
“I don’t see the point in discussing simulacrum positions,” Aleksey Fedyarov, a lawyer with the Rus Seated Foundation, told The Insider. – CSS in the Federal Penitentiary Service does not work, this is visibility. Their task is the same – to keep the noise in the media and relatives from the colonies. Roughly speaking, so that they don’t finish off the convicts at all, ”explained the expert.
The fact that the former head of the CSS of the Federal Penitentiary Service Sergey Dyukov was dismissed was previously reported by the Gulagu.net project. According to human rights activists, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the resignation of Dyukov on December 28 – the same day when has been sent Deputy Director of the Federal Penitentiary Service Anatoly Yakunin. The decree regarding Yakunin has been officially published, but there is no publicly available decree on the dismissal of Dyukov. In addition, there is no presidential decree on the appointment of Andrei Shchugorev to a new position.
Recall that a series of resignations in the governing bodies of the Federal Penitentiary Service occurred after in October 2021 the human rights project Gulagu.net published a series of videos about the torture and rape of prisoners in the tuberculosis hospital of the Federal Penitentiary Service No. SIZO No. 1.
The Insider told about a special torture institution of the Federal Penitentiary Service on the outskirts of Krasnoyarsk, which has been operating for more than 15 years. This place is called EPKT (Single Chamber-Type Premises) and is an intra-camp prison located on the territory of a penal colony of general regime No. 31. According to the plan of the legislators, malicious violators of the regime should get there, but in reality, simply objectionable administrations are often sent there from different institutions prisoners. No one even tries to hide this: in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, both employees and convicts are well aware that in EPKT-31 torture is put on stream.
V this text we talked about those who are responsible for these tortures – about the most famous heads of EPKT-31, as well as about the paramedic who has been present for many years during the torture of prisoners and covering up crimes. At the same time, if for prisoners getting into EPKT-31 is comparable to being sent to hell, then for the heads of this institution it is a step up the career ladder of the Federal Penitentiary Service.
We add that the Federal Penitentiary Service has recently become one of the country’s main newsmakers. Prisoners rape and fierce beaten. Torture conditions created The Federal Penitentiary Service for Alexei Navalny, even despite the fact that the attention of world media and heads of state has been drawn to this convict serving a sentence.
