fighting with the administration
A list of the new composition of the Committee has caused outrage, and the results of the elections to the Moscow Commission for human rights activists is called its defeat. They believe that it is now to obtain information about what is happening with the people in prison will be much harder: most of the members of the Commission, actively worked in the last few years, their positions lost, while newcomers lack experience. Special attention was paid to the presence in the lists of the former head of the SIZO “Butyrka” Dmitry Komnov – defendant in the “Magnitsky list” that lists the people you think are associated with the death of a lawyer in jail.

problematic regions, 67 – year-old Basil Guslyannikova,
the former President of the Mordovian Soviet socialist Republic, from 1996 – Creator and
the head of the Mordovian Republican human rights center.
A member of the PMC Elena Abdullayev had posted on his page in Facebook
report on the performance of Basil Guslyannikova, which she called “a very
ridiculous.” “This member of the PMC in all seriousness claimed that in Mordovia everything is OK, checks are carried out regularly. And all there is in the law, and not beat beat, and torture not tortured. Only one problem: how to divide the food? Muslims have food Muslim, Christians, Christian, Jewish Jews, Buddhists – Buddhist. And in his speech sounded interesting words: “our asset” and “ashamed,” wrote Elena Abdullayev.
According to Guslyannikova, the prisoners themselves do not want to comply with the internal regulations of correctional institutions, do not want to be on duty, and quarrel with the administration, and then complain in PMC. The human rights activist reminded that, in accordance with the route map prepared by human rights defenders, the region is considered “torture”. “Or we do not understand something, or he decided that no one knows anything about Mordovia!” – said Abdullayev.

which of the Mordovian colonies she “often call prisoners, they complain of torture and humiliation and beg for help”.
“ONK of Mordovia included only 9 people, although it was filed 16 applications. I was not included in the PMC Mordovia, as not included in other regional commissions a well-known human rights activists who rescued the prisoners from torture, beatings, extortion, sought to initiate criminal proceedings against those officers of colonies who participated in all these crimes,” said Svetova. She believes that the seizure of the PMC security forces “there is nothing surprising”, this is a consequence of the “law on public control”, which regulates the activity of the PMC, adopted eight years ago. “Over the years, human rights defenders, who visited the prison, became in Russia a foreign body. They provoked the Federal penitentiary service, Federal security service and the investigative authorities,” explained light.
