Called to the cost of a relaxed prison in a Siberian penal colony
A resident of the Khanty-Mansiisk Autonomous district told reporters on extortion in the colony of the city of Surgut, where he is serving a punishment of her son. Her story on Friday, September 21, publishes “the Russian service Bi-bi-si”.
According to the woman, employees of a colony № 11 prisoners require money for “the quiet life”, and if the person refuses to pay, he was transferred to solitary confinement, or WMS, that is a separate area with strict conditions.
At the moment the son of the companion publication by the name Tagiyev is serving a sentence for murder and had already served 12 years. In 2016, he decided to apply for PAROLE, because in recent years it was not decorated with any violations.
According to the prisoner, shortly before the court session, which had to consider the possibility of early release, the staff began to hint that a positive decision costs money. For this, as well as transfer from Sousse and “peaceful” life in prison, Tagiyev demanded 4.5 million rubles. Such money from the prisoner’s family was not.
