Mogilev Region prisons are overcrowded. Domestic conditions do not meet certain. In some correctional facilities violated the rules of fire safety. Convicts do not have adequate health care. These are the results of the inspection the other day sounded the regional prosecutor's office.
For information about the secret society of the prison budennasts rarely voiced by official sources. If that happens, then these messages are extremely scanty, to somehow imagine how people live behind barbed wire. On once Prosecution information about prison life was more. Of the nine colonies are in the region, five are crowded. On two of them, said Deputy Prosecutor Sergei Parfenov:
"In the colony number 19, with the number of inmates — 849 — Floor space per convict is 1.8 square meters. Living area detention center number 5 is taken by one person custody instead of the planned 2.5 meters 2.1 meters. "
Overcrowding leads to a violation of sanitary conditions in the cells. Convicted trohyarusnyh have to sleep on the beds, and they are prohibited by law. Almost every colony violated fire safety rules. Food is prepared for those convicted as a violation of the norms.
Of course, the prosecutor's office reportedly no mention of political prisoners. Young Front Artur Dubskiy in 2009in four months
contained in the said Attorney prison number 5 Bobruisk. About the conditions in which he says:
"If 24 people were smoking in the chamber, and the only one I did not do it, then this very suffering. Decided to invite himself to the bed near to the ventilation of the mine, which pulled it all he could. And just a day or two got chic sinusitis, which healed just two weeks. Medicines were not there. All zalechvalasya simply: take warm water in the bottle and attached to the nose. "
Artur Finkevich utrymlvavsya in Mogilev jail number 4. Administration's attention to his personality is extremely close, as a political activist said:
"When out for a walk, then about six people. Typically output of two. Actually put on my two bands. One — tend to escape, the other is suicidal. Carried to the court in a separate paddy wagon, which was completely filled with people wearing masks."
And yet, what was the reason for such a public prosecutor of candor? Care for the rule of law, responsible official sources. Mogilev rights activist Alexei Kolchin an opinion on this subject:
"Right now a lot more public attention riveted to places of detention in connection with the political process. This affected the prosecutor's office. They also decided to show that they are fighting for the observance of the law in this area. If these facts are made public, they must be corrected immediately. Optimism, however, I have not. Our state machine is interested in space imprisonment remained far from unpleasant place to stay. "
On the audit of a number of employees of the administration of penal colonies, reports the official sources, were disciplined. But then he admits that almost none of the things that found not fixed.
