Today the Kanavinskiy district court of Nizhny Novgorod has received a suit prepared by the Committee against Torture in the interests of Emil Dadashov claiming 500 000 roubles as compensation of moral damage and 77 000 roubles as compensation of material damage connected to Mr. Dadashov’s treatment and restoration of his teeth knocked out by officer Sergey Biryukov from the Nizhegorodskiy district Directorate of the Interior.
On 2 April 2009 Mr. Biryukov was found guilty under cl. “a”, “b”, p.3 art. 286 of the RF CC (abuse of powers with violent treatment and use of special devices).
The court found that defendant Biryukov had acted intentionally, contrary to his duties, without an order issued by his heads and abusing his powers; at night on April 1, 2008 he got into the cell for administrative detainees where Mr. Dadashov was kept and at least ten times applied an electric shocker to the body of the detainee, thus causing him severe sufferings. The officer also kicked Emil in the lumbus area and hit him on the head with his head thus breaking three teeth of the guy.
The same results were obtained in course ofpublic investigationconducted earlier by the Interregional Committee against Torture where Mr. Dadashov had applied for help after the battery.
The verdict has entered into force. In the nearest future the Kanavinskiy district court will start proceedings under the suit.
