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.

"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.
