(en) Czech, afed: With a machine gun at the face or brought in for questioning after Irkutsk [machine translation]

Date Thu, 20 Apr 2017 10:19:44 +0300

On 8 April it was early in the morning in the East Siberian city of Irkutsk detained and brought in for questioning six young anarchists - Igor Martynenko, Sofia Mikituková, Valerie Altarjovová Dmitry Litvin, Alexei Lucagin and Rinat Kumukov. According to information from police detention was not only a demonstration for questioning in a criminal case Dmitrije Litvina, anarchists, who faces charges under section on "insult feelings of believers". It was the sort of picture that should fulfill this paragraph. It was not until the next morning all but Igor Martynenko released. From the moment of detention of Igor next 60 hours nobody knew. ---- Igor Martynenko (which were previously together with Igor cobblers punished for posting anti-fascist banner and handing out anti-war leaflets at Putin demonstration) and five other people were involuntarily brought in for questioning on April 8 morning. The procedure demonstration reminiscent of a scene from an action movie.

"On Saturday at 6 am I was awakened by the doorbell, someone at the door saying that the neighbors below us flowing water from the ceiling. I opened some maskers and I was immediately pinned to the wall. Most of them went away, entered the room where he slept, my son Igor with his girlfriend Sophie. I heard screams. I'm still in great shock. They took them back to Sofia, but the son I had not seen for about three days I did not know where he is and if he's okay, "says the mother of Igor Natalie Maxianovicová. "I was afraid that he was beaten, if not something worse ... Why would not otherwise hiding from us?"

According to Natalie that the police tried to hide her son, no doubt. For two days the Igorovými friends phoning all his detention cell at a police department in an effort to find Igor and send him a lawyer. Incidentally obtain a lawyer succeeded in only one of the detainees, whose lawyer was able to detect your phone investigators. Others remained without lawyers - the police did not allow them simply.

"Lawyer?! We were not allowed to even properly dressed. I woke up because of the strong light that shone into my eyes (I sleep with ear buds in ears). The first thing I saw was the gun pointing me in the face, around the people in balaclavas. I was terrified and screamed, then everyone started screaming maskers, one of them yelled to Igor off the bed, then threw him out of her arms and handcuffed him. Yelling at me to hold your hands up, "says Igor's girlfriend Sofia Mikituková. "Then Igor stood up and said to us, whether to dress, it all filmed on video. Until that moment, and even then we did not hear what they are, tell us where, or on what basis. Of course we asked. I was naked, I had to dress in the presence of cops. I asked on what basis we detained, and I got the answer: Nobody does not hold you. ' So I said I'm not going anywhere and stay at home. The policeman began to threaten me that I pull into the street half-naked and without shoes. It should probably be that significant non '. Then they took us to the police, where indeed there is also the headquarters of the fight against extremism. Officers refused to say their names or you invent - Associates is addressed differently. "Igor and Sofia refused to testify, but in the interview room turns policemen and asked:" What do you do in free time when you are not promoting terrorism? "Or," Where are you hiding machine guns? "

Equally interesting is the fact that during interrogation and asked to Igora Ševcova, anarchist, now living in the Czech Republic. "Well, when returns mate international terrorist cobblers?" I heard some of the detainees. Igora Ševcova as Igor Martynenko police know since you started going to public meetings and were judged in two infringement procedures.

After Igor and Sofia were drafted in the apartment for several hours conducted a house search, allowing it to Igor's mother showed only fleetingly, the court's decision not policemen at all. A similar situation experienced others who were in the day also "brought in for questioning."

On 11 April irkutští anarchists and Igor's mother learned that Igor dostal a 10-day stay in jail as punishment for allegedly disobeying the call official.

Only later it became clear that detention, pardon, brought in for questioning as witnesses to the crime of "insulting the feelings of believers." The reason for initiating criminal prosecution is a picture where you can see the middle finger directed against the Orthodox Church. This figure in 2015 accused anarchist Dmitrij Litvin lajkoval or shared on a social network - which according to the police committed a crime insults feelings of believers. He faces a fine of fat, condition or even several years in prison.

This "religious scandal Litvin," served as a cover for the real purpose of police operations: the next day after the arrest planned irkutští anarchists meetings to organize public gatherings, whose aim was to occupy public space and to hold discussions and debates on current political events and how You can create your own political agenda in protest facts about Irkutsk. Police raids and confiscation of all equipment very complicated organization and communication, on the weekend, however, should take place the first meeting of the project, which was named the Council dissenting.
