CaT: law enforcers beat a resident of Kuban

A resident of the Tuapse District has addressed rights defenders and complained that law enforcers beat him and demanded from him to confess to a crime, reports the "Committee against Torture" (CaT).

On November 19, Yevgeny Bunin from the village of Indyuk in the Tuapse District sought legal assistance at the human rights organization "Committee against Torture", reported the press service of the CaT. The man said that on November 12, he was invited to a conversation to a building of a law enforcement body in Tuapse, where he was handcuffed and requested to write a "confession" to a theft.

"I said that I had not been involved in that crime. After that, a law enforcer began to beat me on my head, and blood began to flow from my nose," said Yevgeny Bunin as quoted by the CaT.

According to Yevgeny Bunin, after law enforcers threatened that they would beat him during all night and then detain him anyway as a suspect, he wrote a confession as dictated by the law enforcers. After that, the law enforcers took him home.

The investigating department of Tuapse has already begun to check the complaint filed by Yevgeny Bunin.
