MOSCOW, May 2 (Itar-Tass) — An injured party filed a legal action at Kazan's Vakhitovsky district court over illegal administrative prosecution on the strength of a report by a "Dalny" police station detective.
"Alia Sadykova, 21, demands a 208,000-rouble compensation for moral damage," spokesman for the Kazan-based human rights protection center Bulat Mukhamedzhanov told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The defendant is the Russian Finance Ministry, because under the law, the damage from illegal administrative prosecution is reimbursed by the treasury."On January 3, 2012, Alia Sadykova went to the "Dalny" police station and reported that policemen had taken away her mobile phone and a bag of things. Detective Ilnar Ibatullin /a defendant in the case over the death of Sergei Nazarov after tortures at the police station/, holding a bottle in his hands, demanded that she admit stealing 70,000 roubles from a bookmaker's office where she worked," Mukhamedzhanov said.
The investigators said the reason for detaining Sadykova and placing her in the cell for detainees facing charges of administrative offenses was a fictitious report by detective Ilnar Ibatullin alleging her administrative offense /petty hooliganism/ during her stay at the police station.
On January 4, a magistrate ordered five days of arrest for Sadykova,Mukhamedzhanov said. Alia had been taken to "Dalny" every day where she was locked in the cell for persons under administrative arrest. She had no bed, she was denied food and drink and could not freely use the lavatory," the rights activist said.
In the evening, she was taken back to the detention center.
In March, Kazan's Privolzhsky district court overturned the magistrate's ruling and stopped proceedings citing a lack of the event of offense. After the death of Sergei Nazarov, 52, at the "Dalny" police station, a criminal case was opened against Ibatullin over "exceeding of authority" and "forgery by official."
A court will set the date for hearing Sadykova's case shortly.
In March, reports said Sergei Nazarov was detained and brought to "Dalny." He later was hospitalized with rectum rupture and died after surgery.
According to forensic examination, the injuries were inflicted on the detainee with a blunt object. Experts also said "he could not have inflicted them on his own."
Nazarov's relatives said he was not drunk at the moment of detention and that before surgery, he said police had tortured him with a champagne bottle.
After the incident came into the limelight, a number of Kazan residents reported similar cases or threats of violence at the "Dalny" station.
