, Dec 8 () –
The Russian opponent Alexei Navalni has presented this Wednesday before a court in the town of Petushkí, in the Russian region of Vladimir, another lawsuit against the IK-2 penitentiary, in which he is imprisoned.
The court has indicated that the document denounces actions by senior officials of the penitentiary related to “precarious prison conditions for people who are in custody or have been sentenced,” although it has not provided further details in this regard.
Navalni has previously filed three other appeals against the center for the behavior of its employees, according to information from the Sputnik news agency. In his lawsuits, the opponent claims that IK-2 staff censor the newspapers they receive, refuse to deliver requested books, and treat him as if he were a person at high risk of flight.
The third demand was rejected by the Russian Justice, although the previous judicial hearings were suspended at the request of the opponent himself. Now, the dissident has shown his opposition to the center declaring him an “extremist and prone to committing terrorist or extremist attacks.”
At the beginning of February, the Russian Justice ruled that Navalni had repeatedly violated the rules of his parole and carried out a suspended sentence of 3 and a half years in prison for fraud and money laundering.
The appeal filed by the defense was unsuccessful, although the Justice subtracted from the sentence the time that Navalni had spent under house arrest, for which he will have to serve another two and a half years.
Navalni was arrested on January 18 upon arrival at Moscow airport for failing to comply with probation after spending months in Germany recovering from a poisoning that the prominent Russian opponent blames directly on the country’s President Vladimir Putin.
