MOSCOW, February 21 (Itar-Tass) — The Investigative Committee is looking into the death of two inmates kept at the Butyrka remand prison, a citizen of Uzbekistan and a citizen of Georgia, spokesman for the Moscow department of the Federal Penitentiary Service /UFSIN/ Sergei Tsygankov told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
On February 17, Zafar Shukurov, b.1979, was found hung on a bed sheet in a cell of psychiatric hospital of SIZO-2 /Butyrka remand prison/ at 12:10, Moscow time. The Uzbek citizen was in custody on charges of robbery. He was arrested on October 9, 2011.
"He has been kept in the remand prison's psychiatric hospital since his transfer there on December 21, 2011, from SIZO-1 /Matrosskaya Tishina remand prison/. He has been on record as a person inclined to self-mutilation and psychic disorders," the UFSIN representative said.
On October 18, native of Georgia Teimurazi Zuzadze, b.1971, accused of theft, died in the same remand prison. Zuzadze died at 11:30, Moscow time.
He was brought to the remand prison from a pre-trial detention center of Moscow police on August 5, 2011.
Even before the ambulance arrived, remand prison medics tried to resuscitate him. Unfortunately, ambulance doctors who arrived at the scene announced the patient's death. According to preliminary information, Zuzadze died of drug overdose.
The Investigative Committee said forensic experts would ascertain the cause of death.
