A translation of new press release by Autonomous Action, 20th of May 2004

An illegal search in house of a journalist and anti-fascist Aleksei Cherepanov in
Krasnodar In morning of 19th of May unknown people broke into a dormatory where
Aleksei and his wife Oksana Muzykina live, and conducted a search in the flat.
When Oksana came home and saw what had happened, she called police but even police
failed to find out who had conducted the search. Unknown people had stolen
some 600 roubles, around 15 different anarchist periodicals and several
family photographs. Police refused to accept an announcement about illegal
trespassing to house of Aleksei and Oksana, but they confirmed orally
fact of the trespass and asked Oksana to write a report. Komendant of
dormatory talked with people who conducted the search, but does not
remember from which organisation they were, and had they a permission to
conduct a search or not. A search conducted without awareness of owner
of the flat is illegal anyway.

History of the case

In morning of 12th of May journalist Aleksei Cherepanov was arrested on his
way to military call-up center by
officers of Gosnarkokontrol. 5.30 PM the same day he called to his friend in
work, and said "I am arrested, they found drugs on me". During short
conversation it become clear, that he was arrested for 9 days. Friends and
relatives of Aleksei say that he never used drugs and could not have any
with him.

Administration of Internal Affairs (UVD) of central administrative area of
Krasnodar explain reason of arrest as "refusal to obey legal orders of
officers of Gosnarkokontrol" (paragraph 19.3 of administrative codex). We
failed to find out what were these "legal orders" of Gosnarkokontrol
officers, and how exactly Aleksei "failed" to obey them. 15th of May
Aleksei's wife Oksana Muzykina received two letters, which were illegally
passed to her from jail. Aleksei Cherepanov writes, that "FSB (ex-KGB)
sticked to the case", and they have no intentions to release him after 9
days of arrest. He wrote that drugs have been planted om him, and they are
threating with a criminal prosecution. He asked to find a lawyer, since he
was certain that he was in a serious trouble. Currently Aleksei is held in
special jail of Administration of Internal Affairs of
central administrative area of Krasnodar.

Aleksei Cherepanov, born 1979, finished journalist faculty of K.V. Rossinsky
institute of Krasnodar in January of 2004.
He has written for dailies and journals Chelovek truda (of Kuban official
trade unions), Otkrytiy mir, Nasha Kuban,
MK na Kubany and other regional papers. In some of his articles he was
attacking persecution of illegal immigrants
in Krasnodar area. In 1998 Aleksei was chair of local section of
Anti-fascist Youth Action (AMD) in the city of Primorsko-Axtarsk of
Krasnodar area, back then he initiated a campaign against activities of
fascist RNE (Russian National Unity) party in his city. Since 1999 Aleksei
has participated to activities of anarchist movement, and currently he is a
member of Autonomous Action. He helped with publication of journal Avtonom
and participated to organisation of many actions and campaigns.
