Analytical report on law and convicts’ rights violations in correctional facilities of the Sverdlovsk region for 2014

0
1065

Previous 2014 seriously «shook up» penitentiary system of the Sverdlovsk region. It was connected with active work of members of Public Monitoring Committee of the third calling which began in November 2013. Such active work of Public Monitoring Committee was caused by the presence of a great number of members who are independent from the Federal Service for Execution of punishment and personal interests, members who aren’t focused on «good relations» with the Federal Service and local police and not on making profit from their activity, but they are focused on getting real results in the field of human rights observance in the correctional facilities of the Sverdlovsk region.

It’s worth to mention that in Public Monitoring Committee there are a lot of members who are directly or indirectly depend on the Federal Service for Execution of punishment; they are not interested in frank inspections and in discovering law violations and further corrections of them; quite opposite those members tend to hide violations and crimes of authorities. Some of them (in particular, the Chairman — Ashurbek Manasov) were adopted as candidates from organizations controlled by Federal Service for Execution of punishment and other law enforcement agencies.

Due to increased activity of members over the past year there has been a significant growth of actions of human rights defenders, lawyers and civilians connected with cooperate work in finding facts of law violations in the facilities, restoring violated rights.

Such growth lead to serious problem recognition in the correctional facilities (in particular, the penal colonies № 2, 5, 47, 62, 63 and medical correctional facility № 58, the pretrial detention center — 1) connected with application of refined tortures, sexual abuse, humiliations sometimes causing death of inmates. There have been found problems with failure to provide medical attention; inhuman detainment conditions in the medical correctional facility № 23, penal colony № 18, penal colony № 15 (Sosva, Sverdlovsk region), the medical correctional facility № 58 (Nadymovka, Ivdel area), which resulted in untimely death of convicts.

It’s required emergency measures to resolve these problems. For that human rights defenders and members of Public Monitoring Committee try to put all efforts and use means of Ombudsman, his assistants, Investigative Committee, prosecutor office, Federal Service for Execution of punishment and other federal, regional and public organizations.

System problem with providing convicts with legal consultations still exist; a right to help by lawyers is being constantly violated in the facilities by denial of access for lawyers and defenders to inmates, by not giving confidential meetings, by making a lot of obstructions, by not sending out letters into human rights organizations, Public Monitoring Committee, authorities etc.

Because of that we had to file claims into courts upon human rights violations connected with absence of the possibilities to provide convicts with legal help, obstructions during meetings (for instance, ban to get a pen and paper to write a complaint).

Most of such court hearings have been victorious — courts declared actions of officers to be unlawful in penal colony № 5 (Nizhny Tagil), penal colony № 62 (Ivdel), penal colony № 63 ( Ivdel), penal colony № 19 (Tavda).

In penal colony № 2 (Yekaterinburg) has been discovered a problem of complete absence of opportunity to provide inmates with legal consultations who are at prison hospital by denial of access for lawyers and defenders.

This problem has been solved on federal level as part of court procedure in Supreme Court; defenders challenged p. 119 «On procedures of medical treatment delivery for people serving sentences in the correctional facilities» ratified by Order of Ministry of Health and social development of the Russian Federation № 640 and Ministry of Justice № 190.

Upon this case there has been handed down and come into force Decision of Supreme Court from 6.06.2014 to declare this order to be invalid.

According to available information this Decision of Supreme Court is almost applied in the penal colony № 2. However, many convicts, their defenders are not aware of it. Information about execution of this judgment in other regions and in the Ural Federal District is missing. Besides, due to active efforts of members of Committee and counter efforts of the Federal Service as well as administration of colony to our actions, we had to file claims into courts upon issues connected with violations of rights of members of Public Monitoring Committee to carry out their activities in the correctional facilities (issues of photo, video recording, use of measuring means, denial of access according to Order 119 by Ministry of Health and social development № 640 and Ministry of Justice № 190 from 17.10. 2005 » On procedures of medical treatment delivery for people serving sentences in the correctional facilities»).

Many problems that members of Committee have faced during their works, were solved with help of relevant applications to Federal Service for Execution of punishment, prosecutor office, Ombudsman under Federal Law № 76.

However, there are some questions left which are being resolved with different approaches by all mentioned bodies (in particular, issues of photo, video recording, use of measuring means, denial of access etc.).

It’s worth to mention that over the past year not every time defenders could gain full understanding with administration of correctional facilities and law enforcement bodies. These bodies operate outside the law very very often. So we had to search for the truth in courthouses and it made process of restoring violated rights more difficult.

Unfortunately, law enforcement bodies are not interested in fighting against tortures, humiliations, existence of «convicts-activist» in other words convicts who are endued with duties of administration towards other inmates. Penitentiary system use them in order «solve a crime» and maintenance of fake «controllability» of inmates.

That’s why attempts of human rights society to fight against such negative stuff bump into «wall» of unconcern and sometimes straight-out disregard to defenders’ legal work.

The main problems in the correctional facilities of Sverdlovsk region in our opinion are:

— moral and physical violence towards convicts applied by officers of the facilities but most of all by hands of other convicts so-called «activists of section of discipline and order»;

— special type of torture — inmates enchained with handcuffs to grille for several days in a row (in particular, the penal colonies № 5,6 in Nizhny Tagil);

— facts of «punitory» psychiatry in the pretrial detention center -1 of Yekaterinburg (in the other ones such facts not found);

— physical and psychiatric pressure on convicts with the aim of making them to refuse legal help;

-constant facts of unlawful refusals to give meetings to lawyers and defenders who have a right to provide convicts with legal help;

— violations of rights of members of Public Monitoring Committee when they carry out public inspections in the facilities including communication in confidential mode, studying documentation like log of visits or book of bodily injuries, use of photo and video cameras, measuring tools, denial of access;

— detainment conditions which don’t meet standards, especially in the pretrial detention centers and in further areas like Sosva, Gari, Ivdel and Tavda;

— detainment conditions which don’t meet standards at squads under strict conditions which almost like solitaries;

— failure to provide convicts with medical treatment;

-numerous facts of non-sending our correspondence as a rule, complaints of actions of administration;

— persecution of convicts in the form of application of fake disciplinary fines as a punishment for their attempts to fight for rights — complaining, challenging decisions;

-absence or lack of phones in the facilities: this fact deprives convicts of rights to phone communication and makes corruptive situation in there (jailers take bribes and give inmates cell phones).
