Three employees of Department of internal Affairs on the Western administrative district of Moscow (UVD ZAO) was dismissed due to non-compliance with the regulations of the detention of journalist Ivan Golunova. It is reported by Telegram-channel Baza.
Police kicked off the service with the wording “for negative reasons and in compliance with regulations in the work.” In particular, the staff made the breach, when the detainee has not provided timely counsel and did not made contact with relatives.
Dismissed intend to sue the interior Ministry, because I believe that the reason for this was not. The police claim that the lawyer Golunova were still granted, and the ban on calls, they explained that the journalist wanted to communicate with relatives and outsiders.
Correspondent of “Medusa” Ivan Golunov was detained in Moscow on 6 June. He was charged with attempted sale of drugs and sent under house arrest. Gross violations during the arrest of the journalist and the obvious provocative nature of his prosecution has caused a sharp public outcry: the building of the main Department of internal Affairs across Moscow gathered a large number of activists demanding the release of Golunova. On 11 June the Minister announced the closure of the case against Golunova and his release.
