“There is no threat to his health and life.” The head of the FSIN on the transfer of Navalny to a colony
Director of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) Alexander Kalashnikov confirmed that politician Alexei Navalny was transferred from a pre-trial detention center in Moscow to a colony.
“I guarantee that there is no threat to his health and life,” said the head of the Federal Penitentiary Service (quoted by TASS).
Kalashnikov did not say which colony Navalny was sent to, referring this issue to the politician’s defense and relatives. “By a court decision, he left where he should now be, everything has been done within the framework of the law,” the head of the Federal Penitentiary Service said.
In the colony, according to Kalashnikov, Navalny “will be kept in absolutely normal conditions.” “The regime, supervision and control will be provided to him one hundred percent. Navalny, if he wishes, will be involved in production activities, ”said the head of the Federal Penitentiary Service (quoted by Interfax ).
On February 2, the Simonovsky District Court of Moscow replaced Navalny’s suspended sentence in the Yves Rocher case with a real one. The Moscow City Court on February 20 recognized the verdict as legal, after which it entered into force. Taking into account the time spent in the pre-trial detention center and under house arrest, Navalny will have to spend two and a half years in the colony.
On February 25, Navalny’s lawyers reported that the politician had been taken out of the pre-trial detention center. The Moscow Public Monitoring Commission (POC) then said that the politician was convoyed to a colony, but it is not known which one.
The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in mid-February demanded that the Russian authorities release Navalny, indicating in its decision that the life of the politician is in danger. Russia did not comply with the ECHR’s requirement.
