ROSTOV-ON-DON, November 29 (Itar-Tass) — Three Rostov penitentiary # 10 personnel have been detained for humiliating and beating an inmate, the press service of the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service /FSIN/ told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
Earlier, a video showing prison personnel beating a man was placed on the Internet. A preliminary check ascertained that a convict, aged 30, had been convoyed to the Rostov penitentiary from remand prison # 3, Novocherkassk. He had been sentenced to 3.5 years in a general regime penitentiary.
"The convict behaved provocatively, criticized the prison regime, and flatly refused to comply with the legitimate requirements by prison personnel, i.e. hand in his civilian clothes and put on the prison uniform," FSIN said.
The man was brought to an office at the prison's security department where prison personnel used special means and physical force on him which was obviously in excess of their authority. Thus, the convicted person's rights were violated to a significant extent. The rough handling of the inmate was recorded by a video camera.
Police have ascertained the identity of six persons involved in the battery. Of those, two had been fired by the time the video was placed on the Internet.
The regional department of the Investigative Committee opened a criminal case under Article 286 of Russia’s penal code "exceeding authority." Three of the six suspects have been detained.
