(en) Russia Support anarchist and antifa prisoners in St.Petersburg!
Tue, 30 Jan 2018 13:51:32 +0200
Fundraising for lawyers working on cases about police raids and arrests of anarchists and
antifascists in St. Petersburg ans Penza, Russia has begun. At the moment 2 people in St.
Petersburg and 5 people in Penza are arrested, more are connected to the case as
witnesses. Continuation of raids and repressions is highly possible. They are charged with
2 of Art. 205.4 of russian Criminal Code (participation in terrorist community) at the
request of court from Penza. ---- On January 23 on the way to Pulkovo Airport the Federal
Security Service (FSB) detained Victor Filinkov. In order to get the testimony he was
beaten up and tortured with electric shocks in the wood. Signs of torture were confirmed
by the Filinkov's lawyer and members of the Public Monitoring Commission (ONK) who have
visited him in the pre-trial detention center. Filinkov is arrested for two months.
On January 25 the FSB came unexpectedly with a raid to Igor Shishkin's apartment. After
the raid neither his lawyer, nor members of Public Monitoring Commission were unable to
find Igor for more than a day. On January 27 Igor with signs of a beating was brought to a
court session where he was arrested in Pre-trial Detention Center for two months.
Journalists were not allowed to attend the hearing and evenmore two of them were arrested.
Tortures were also applied to witnesses. Ilya Kapustin was beaten up and tortured with
electric shock while police demanded him to give testimony that some of his acquantances
are up to "something dangerous". Numerous traces of the stun gun usage were recorded later
by health service.
Legal help is necessary for prisoners (whose number can increase) and witnesses. So far it
is early to speak about the certain amount of money, but it will be at least 200 thousand
rubles for work of lawyers in the next months.
