The town court of Yoshkar-Ola awarded 80 000 rubles for 3 months of illegal detention

12 October, 2010. Mari El Republic. The town court of Yoshkar-Ola awarded 80 000 rubles to Vyacheslav Timoschenko as a compensation for moral damage caused by illegal criminal investigation.

On 29 May, 2009 Vyacheslav Timoschenko was going to the shop, when police officers came to him, gave him several blows and took him to the forest. They forced him to confess in committing the crime. Then Vyacheslav was taken to the building of the Interior Ministry and police officers took a packet with hashish from his pocket.
Public investigation on this case was carried out by lawyers of Representation of Interregional Committee against Tortures under Regional public organization “Human being and Law”. There was medical evidence that Vyacheslav was beaten by police officers and that he doesn’t use any drugs. He has been detained for three months and he didn’t have a chance to see his relatives and pregnant wife.
As a result, Vyacheslav was discharged by the court. And then lawyers of RPO “Human being and Law” submitted a suit on compensation for moral damage. The court awarded 80 000 rubles to Vyacheslav Timoschenko. But this amount is extremely small, taking into consideration the damage caused by illegal criminal investigation.
