Open Appeal to Chairman of the Investigatory Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) Alexander Bastrykin of residents of the Krasnodar Territory

Esteemed Alexander Ivanovich!

We, the residents of the Krasnodar Territory, who came to the reception held by you in the Investigatory Department of the ICRF for the Krasnodar Territory, are forced to once again appeal to you, because corruption among the bodies of state power of the Krasnodar Territory has reached the scale that threatens the national security and interests of our state, while the regime of outright trampling of citizens' constitutional rights has firmly established in the bodies of the executive power of Krasnodar and the Krasnodar Territory.

The case of every citizen of the Russian Federation, who came to your reception, is unique; however, all the cases are united by a common problem - a restricted force of law in the territory of the Krasnodar Territory, and hence the absence of rights and freedoms of a human and citizen. The state machine for destruction of constitutional guarantees of inhabitants of the Territory is running at full power suppressing all the layers of the population.

We have repeatedly addressed our similar appeals to various officials, including you; however, by some irony of the fate, they all were downloaded to those, against whom we complained in our appeals.

The cases of all residents of the Krasnodar Territory were repeatedly considered by the investigatory bodies of the Krasnodar Territory; the adopted procedural decisions were supervised by the bodies of the prosecutor's office, including the Territorial Prosecutor's Office. With all the specificities of the essence and events in every particular case, and reasons and arguments in victims' applications asking to prosecute fraud and corruption, the result of the investigatory check is always the same: the initiation of the criminal case is denied "for lack of crime elements" and the "refusal" statement is legal, reasonable and duly motivated"; therefore the supervising prosecutors "have no grounds for prosecutor's reaction."

In those rare cases, when citizens manage to restore law and prove obvious violations of their rights in court, the enforcement of judicial orders is boycotted by bodies of state power, while prejudicial conclusions of the courts have no value for the bodies of investigation and prosecution. Instead of punishing the criminals, whose wrongful acts have been proved by judicial decisions, investigators seek out circumstances to refuse to open criminal cases, thereby covering real crimes and strengthening corruption ties.

After you last reception on October 27, 2011, nothing has changed; the Investigatory Division for the city of Krasnodar just a week before the today's reception began to frantically invite to reception to the acting division head, realizing that everybody will go again to your reception.

This time we do not ask but demand YOU to intervene, finally, in the current situation in our Territory in accordance with the applicable Russian legislation and stop the progression of corruption.

The city of Krasnodar, January 24, 2012

  • Public humiliation remains officials' tool for fighting dissent in Chechnya

    Chechen authorities are making use of public humiliations by relying both on the Soviet experience and on the long-standing traditions of the nation. However, over time, people's systematic demonstrative humiliations start generating the opposite effect, the experts interviewed by the "Caucasian Knot" believe.
