Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrint

Convicted Chistopol prison has claimed that such were the consequences of "conversation" with police. According to the verdict in a criminal case not a single proof of his guilt, apart from confessions.


October 9, 2003 in Human Rights Centre of Kazan received a letter from Baganova Alexey Yu, born 30.10.75, sentenced to 4 years and 6 months in prison, serving a term of l / s in the establishment of UE 148 / T UIN MJ RF in the RT Tchistopol.

In his letter, Bagan said that on Nov. 2, 2002 on suspicion of committing a crime, he was arrested by the police department of the village Vasilyevo. In conducting the preliminary investigation against Baganova used illegal methods, as reflected in the fact that the detective ESD AG, together with other unidentified police officers brought the detainee Baganova in plantation, located near the village of New Arakchino, where he was hung from a tree upside down and began to strike truncheon on various parts of the body. From injury Bagan lost consciousness and regained consciousness only in the premises IVS Zelenodolsk GROVD. From the words Baganova he was unconscious for 3 to 4 days. The IVS Zelenodolsk GROVD he spent about one week, after which he was transferred to the Detention Unit № 2 Kazan. In the words Baganova before they are brought into the SI-2 with him were not carried out any investigations.
For the purpose of verification of the facts mentioned in the letter have been studied in the criminal case. The record shows that Bagan had indeed been arrested on 2 November 2002 and in custody Zelenodolsk GROVD. For Baganova 04 November 2002 as a preventive measure was elected detention. However, in the SI-2 Kazan Bagan was delivered only on Nov. 13, 2002. Based on the materials of the criminal case, 06 November 2002 года Bagan was re-interviewed and had been audited statements on the spot to travel around the village. Vasiliev. It was during that further examination and verification of testimony on the ground only once in a criminal case indicated the presence of a security officer ESD A. It was during these investigative activities Bagan first confessed to the theft of several additional episodes. According to materials of the criminal case, the next time Bagan attended by the investigator only on November 26 when reading the results of the examinations.
In the appeal Baganova contains information that on its use of violence by the police, with the aim of obtaining a confession of crimes. However, the court has not taken any measures to ensure that authorized law enforcement agencies has been audited this information, there has been no procedural decision.
However, according to the sentence, except a confession of the Baganova, as well as enshrining their test evidence on the ground, in a criminal case not a single proof of his guilt. His evidence does not confirm the results of fingerprint examinations, examinations soles of the feet, nor the testimony of the victims, nor the results of a search, or even the testimony of an accomplice in crime - Eremina.
According to the inter-regulations, the staff of the detention facility do not have the right to take remand prisoners with signs of injury, thus leaving a perceived motive Baganova in IVS Zelenodolsk GROVD within 11 days after the election of a preventive measure.
Based on the foregoing, given that Bagan in a timely manner to law enforcement agencies with the message that, in respect of his violence was committed by members of the militia, and established fact that the staff OM "Vasilyevo" Zelenodolsk GROVD had the objective to cause him bodily harm, and that government agencies were not conducted a full and comprehensive investigation of this fact, I think that in this case, there is reason to believe that the actions of public authorities elements essential to the violation of Art. 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
