Today, on 4 May 2016, judge of the Novotroitskiy City Court Ekaterina Rodygina passed a sentence to former head of Penal Colony-Settlement No.11 of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Orenburg region Filyus Khusainov. He is declared guilty of committing the crime under item «а» part 3 Article 286 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation («abuse of office performed using violence or with a threat of its use») and sentenced to three years of prison term in a standard regime penal colony.    

As we have previously reported, according to Sergey Nikonorov, who had served a sentence in Penal Colony No.11 before, head of this penal institution Filyus Khusainov used threats and creating unbearable conditions to force him and other convicts to perform construction works at his summer cottage.

In the proceedings, evaluating the results of the investigation, the state prosecutor said that the defendant’s guilt is completely proven and asked the court to sentence him to 5 years prison term in the standard regime penal colony. In addition, the prosecutor thought it necessary to apply additional punishment: deprivation of the rank of Major and of the right to hold public office within three years.

In his turn, defendant Khusainov admitted his guilt, but only partially, denying his guilt in the part of using a fire-arm for the purpose of the victim Nikanorov intimidation.

However, the state prosecutor insisted that Khusainov using fire-arm during committing the crime is proven by the cumulative evidence. In particular, the victim precisely described the appearance of the gun before the traumatic weapon was seized in the course of the search in the Khusainov’s apartment. In addition, witness S., who was refurbishing the internal premises of a country house, stated that he heard a loud bang during Khusainov’s visit to the construction site. A dent on the stainless steel sheet of the fencing, which, according to the expert examination, could be made by the bullet fired from a traumatic gun, completes the picture.

Today judge of the Novotroitskiy City Court Ekaterina Rodygina passed a judgment of conviction to former head of Penal Colony-Settlement No.11 of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Orenburg region Filyus Khusainov and sentenced him to three years of prison term.  In addition, Khusainov is debarred from holding a public office within two years.

«After entry of judgment into legal force we will file a lawsuit to the Federal Treasury concerning the compensation of moral damage incurred to my client with this crime», – member of the Committee for Prevention of Torture Vyacheslav Dyundin, representing the interests of victim Sergey Nikonorov in court, commented.
