Alexei Navalny has been transferred to a high-security jail, his spokesperson Kira Yarmysh introduced in a tweet Wednesday.
“His lawyer managed to see him. Alexei sends his greetings to everybody,” she wrote, including that Navalny is presently being saved in quarantine.
The IK-6 penal colony, the place Navalny has been moved, is a most safety jail in Melekhovo, 250 kilometers east of Moscow, and has been the topic of a number of investigations into the abuse of inmates. “IK-6 in Melekhovo is a monstrous place,” Yarmysh tweeted in Might, when it was rumored that Navalny could possibly be transferred there.
The information comes a day after Yarmysh wrote on twitter that Navalny’s whereabouts had been unknown. In line with Yarrmysh, the jailed dissident was relocated with out the data of his attorneys or family members.
“His lawyer, who got here to see him, was saved on the checkpoint till 14.00, and was then instructed: ‘There isn’t any such convict right here’,” Yarmysh wrote on Tuesday. She stated there have been rumors Navalny had been transferred to IK-6, however they had been solely confirmed on Wednesday.
Navalny was imprisoned in February 2021 on costs of violating probation, after getting back from Germany, the place he had been recovering after being poisoned with a nerve agent, an assault that he accused the Kremlin of ordering. In March this 12 months, Navalny was sentenced to a different 9 years in jail on fraud costs — after a trial dismissed as a sham by Amnesty Worldwide.
