Opposition activist Ildar Dading Friday, April 21, filed a lawsuit in the Railway city court of Moscow region with the requirement to collect from Russia of compensation of five million rubles for the illegal persecution, reports the BBC Russian service with reference to the lawyer Ksenia Kostromina.
“This morning, filed a claim on behalf of the government for damages caused by unlawful criminal prosecution, which resulted first house arrest, then detention, the content in the remand prison and the penal colony,” – said Kostromina.
According to his lawyer, the main question is, how much compensation will ultimately appoint the court: whether he agrees with the five million rubles, or feel that much.
Dading became the first convicted under article 212.1 of the criminal code of the Russian Federation about repeated violations of the rules of the meeting. In December 2015 he was found guilty and sentenced to three years in prison, but later the term was reduced to two and a half years.
The activist served his sentence first in Karelia, and then in the Altai colonies. During the detention he complained about the torture to which he was subjected in Segezha IR N7.
Subsequently, the constitutional court recognised that the article, which was condemned by Dading, was unconstitutional, but recommended to change it, and the sentence the activist to reconsider. In the end, 22 of February this year the Supreme court overturned the verdict, and Dading were released.
Federal service of execution of punishments after this Dadina sent a letter of apology on behalf of the state, as required by law. The letter noted that he has the right to rehabilitation and reparation.
In November 2016 the European Parliament at its plenary session in Strasbourg
on the observance of human rights, adopted
the resolution, which also demanded the immediate release of the Dading
colonies and independent investigation into his allegations of torture.
