Natalya Dinisenko and Lyubov Kavelidze who informed about the battery of their sons at the Tbilissky District Police Department of the Krasnodar Territory, applied to the Prosecutor of the Krasnodar Territory Sergey Tabelsky. He said that he would examine the materials of the check and would supervise the investigation personally.
The Committee Against Torture is conducting a public investigation on two complaints of torture at the Tbilissky District Police Department for the Krasnodar Territory. As we have previously reported, Aleksey Dinisenko reported that he was beaten up by the police officers, after that he was hospitalized with craniocerebral injury and a brain concussion. Later on, the medics also detected a space-occupying mass in the left hemisphere of his cerebellum, a contusion of a kidney and a suspected aneurysm. According to his mother, after the news was published in the media, he was asked to leave the hospital, despite his fever and headache. The criminal case against the police officers was never initiated.
The young man is charged with a theft of a phone involving burglary.
A quote from the minutes of the personal appointment with Prosecutor Tabelsky, lawyer with the Committee Against Torture Anna Kotsareva: “A threat came from the investigator, that if within two days’ time we did not withdraw our applications to various authorities, Aleksey’s measure of restraint will be changed”.
After Aleksey Dinisenko’s mother Natalya submitted an application to Deputy Prosecutor of the Tbilissky District, the police officers came to Dinisenko’s apartment with a search.
Georgy Kavelidze’s relatives applied with a report on battery at the same police department. According to them, after Georgy was beaten up, he fell into a coma and shortly died from “traumatic swelling of the brain without an open craniocerebral injury, as well as from other intracranial traumas”. Shortly before death, the man told his mother that the police officers were forcing him to confess of murder.
A quote from the minutes of the personal appointment with Prosecutor Tabelsky, Lyubov Kavelidze, Georgy’s mother: “I saw a swell on his head as big as a fist, dry clotted blood in the ear, which was bleeding a little. He was shaking with fever and was wet all over. I started to cry and asked him: “Why did they beat you up like that?” To that he replied: “So that I say that I killed Kizim”.
On the next day after the news on Kavelidze’s death was issued, the Chief Directorate of the Ministry of the Interior of Russia for the region reported that the death was caused by a fit of epilepsy, during which the man got a head injury. Georgy’s mother denies that he had epilepsy.
Sergey Tabelsky promised that he would give the task to the central office to request the materials of the check and that he would personally supervise the investigation of the complaints submitted by Natalya Dinisenko and Lyubov Kavelidze.
