Ombudsman Moskalkova will appeal to the prosecutor's office because of too many people in jail against too frequent use of detention as a preventive measure. The Ombudsman plans to contact the prosecutor's office on this issue.
“I intend to ask the prosecutor to draw attention to the situation related to the use of a preventive measure in the form of detention,” she said. p>
The Ombudsman noted that the leadership of SIZO-4 of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in Moscow, which she had visited earlier, had to equip additional cells due to the too large number of people in the isolation ward – the main premises for holding prisoners were overcrowded.
