“In Moscow from the territorial bodies received answers that revealed no violations. We decided to double-check. In those territorial authorities, for which we had information that they could violate the rights of prisoners, was forwarded to the Commission. In 42 cases the violations were confirmed, were identified videos, and other materials that testified to the fact that our employees behave at least improperly,” — said Maksimenko.
