Adviser to the head of “Roskosmos” and the journalist Ivan Safronov, who was accused of treason, is not infected with a coronavirus. About it to Agency “Interfax” said the Commissioner for human rights in Russia Tatiana Moskalkova.
According to her, arrested conducted two tests, both were negative. Now Safronov “feels right, or already moved, or must be transferred from a single quarantine chamber in ordinary.”
Safronov, who is in jail “Lefortovo”, was isolated with suspected coronavirus on July 27.
The former head of the Council on human rights Mikhail Fedotov did not rule out that a suspected coronavirus Safronov could be “an excuse” for absolute isolation of the prisoner. The defender believes that the case of journalist is a compelling argument in favor of the revision of the 275th article of the Criminal code “treason”. After, as amended “criminal proceedings for treason is possible with equal success to attract the journalist and pensioner or a housewife,” said Fedotov.
Safronov was detained on July 7 and arrested for two months. The FSB claim that he was recruited in 2012 by the Czech secret service, on the instructions of which he allegedly gave it to the representative in 2017 information constituting a state secret. Safronov pleaded not guilty.
