IRKUTSK, June 26 (Itar-Tass) - Inmates in a prison for former police in the Irkutsk region have again demanded easier regulations.
"At 09:30, on Wednesday, 400 persons amassed on central ground; of those 39 had cut their arms in apparent attempt to blackmail the prison administration," the press service of the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service /FSIN/ said.
The demands varied but they largely boiled down to easier regulations.
"All the injured were treated for cuts and bandages were put on their arms," a FSIN officer said.
The regional ombudsman, prosecutors and FSIN officials visited the prison. The inmates demanded the presence of journalists, and several camera crew were allowed to enter the premises.
A check into the incident is underway. It is not the first mutiny in penitentiary # 3. Last weekend, inmates staged a protest on central ground demanding better prison conditions.
