Former Director of the school in the Irkutsk region was beaten after complaining to the Ombudsman

In Cheremkhovo district of the Irkutsk region the man attacked the former Director of the village school Xenia Antipin and her father. On Thursday, October 12, informs a portal “Irksib”.

The incident occurred on September 11, but was known about him just now. The woman told the publication that first their car clipped a Land Rover, then the driver of a large body left the car, struck her father in the face and then began beating her. “He was screaming to shut up and said nothing. We don’t even understand at first what is the reason for the attack” — said Antipina.

As a result, the woman received injuries to the cervical spine and back, her parent’s broken face. She had already visited the emergency room and the police — there is a statement about the beating took only from her father.

According to a former school principal, she was attacked because she recently asked for the protection of labour rights the Commissioner for human rights in the Irkutsk region Valery Lukin.

At the beginning of October regional Department of education did not renew the contracts with her and another Director. Both of them had earlier refused to campaign for United Russia Alexander Matveev, whose candidacy was supported by the head of cheremkhovskiy district Victor Poronin.

Meanwhile, the assailant was a Deputy of the local Duma Sergey Semenov, brother of the mayor of Cheremkhovo Vadim Semenov. In conversation with the publication of “Altair” he accused Antipin in provoking the conflict. According to him, he was nearly crushed on the road, but the incident he described as a “quarrel with mats”.

“Today I found out that she was the headmaster and she, I think, the master of Russian literature, I, man, 44-year-old, these words just heard, Holy smoke, — said Semyonov. — Assault? Well, there was a mutual history. But to inflate this into politics — stupidity. A normal incident of the road turned into a tent.”

Meanwhile, Ombudsman Lukin appealed to the leadership of the main Department of MIA in Irkutsk region with a request to conduct an objective investigation into the incident.
