The former inmate of the Mordovian colony No. 2 Inga Krivitskaya asks to collect 2 million rubles from the head of “Russia sitting” Olga Romanova and Chairman of the movement “For human rights” Lev Ponomarev for the widespread “false information”. She filed a lawsuit on protection of honor and dignity in the Khoroshevsky court, reported TASS the press-Secretary Elena Humenne.
The court will begin consideration of the claim on the merits on January 10.
In particular, speech can go about the statement of Mr. Ponomarev at a press conference of “Novaya Gazeta” in June 2017, dedicated to the protection of the rights of prisoners. The defender then stated that “there are people who are tortured, beaten, and there are people who are beaten”.
