YEKATERINBURG, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — A former security officer of the prison in Kopeisk, the Chelyabinsk Region, where mass protests took place, is given 18 months on probation for bribe taking.
The officer, Vladimir Almanov, who worked at the prison, is found guilty of bribe taking and power abuse and given 18 months on probation. In addition, he must pay a 50,000-rouble fine.
As is established, in September this year, Almanov received 2,000 roubles from friends of a prisoner to hand over a mobile telephone with a charger to him.
On November 24, in the Kopeisk prison, up to 500 prisoners refused to obey the administration and demanded to ease prison conditions.
Five criminal cases were opened over the disorders on charges of use of violence against policemen and one case on charges of money extortion from prisoners under violence threat.
A group of investigators is working at the prison. They have received more than 120 complaints from prisoners. Many report about extortions of money, from 5,000 to 90,000 roubles, from prisoners during the period from 2008 to November 2012 under the threat of creating hard prison conditions and use of violence.
The Investigative Committee's authorities in the Chelyabinsk Region continue the inquiry into the prisoners' disobedience.
