MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Zavolzhsky District Court of the city of Yaroslavl issued a verdict in a criminal case against 11 former employees of correctional colony No. 1 of the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia aged 24 to 36 years.
Depending on the role and degree of participation in the crimes committed, they were found guilty under paragraphs. “A”, “b” part 3 of Art. 286 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (abuse of office with the use of violence and special means).
The court established that in June 2017, the colony employees carried out “preventive work” with a convict who was serving a sentence in a correctional institution who systematically violated the regime.
The malefactors subjected the convict to beating, inflicting multiple blows on his legs, torso and head using special means. Mostly blows were applied with a rubber stick on the heels of the convict to hide the traces of the use of physical force. As a result, the victim suffered bodily harm, which did not result in health problems.
The reason for the initiation of a criminal case was the posting in the media of a video recording containing scenes of violence against the prisoner.
Taking into account the position of the public prosecutor, the court sentenced 11 accomplices to imprisonment for terms ranging from 3 years to 4 years and 3 months, serving their sentences in a general regime penal colony. They are also deprived of the right to hold positions related to the exercise of the functions of a government representative in law enforcement agencies for a period of 2 years and 6 months. Six of them were released in the courtroom in connection with serving their sentences.
A criminal case against one of the former employees of the colony was suspended due to a serious illness.
The verdict has not entered into legal force.
