Members of Irkutsk Public Monitoring Committee are not admitted to the colony №19


As we were informed in the morning on December 16 members of Irkutsk Public Monitoring Committee received information that inmates in the penal colony №19 did mass self injuries, they cut their veins. The reason was unlawful actions of prison officers. Also inmates were not able to have food.

Members of Committee – Olga Sharafudinova and Marina Minyailova warned Federal Service for Execution of punishment and at 15:00 arrived to the penal colony in order to check this information but they have been waiting for 2 hours!

We called to Prosecutor office of Irkutsk region. No result so far.

Now members of Public Monitoring Committee are waiting at the walls of colony.
