Penal staff rapped on the knuckles
The heads of the penal colonies where incidents occurred recently are to be punished, at least through disciplinary measures. On 4 April a meeting was held at the State Department for the Execution of Sentences, with the participation of the management of the Department itself, its divisions in the Zaporizhya and Kherson regions, as well as of the Berdyansk (No. 77) Kharkiv (No. 43), Temnivsk (No. 100) and Pervomaisk (No. 117) colonies. It was called to discuss the incidents which took place in those penal institutions during March this year.
The meeting brought disciplinary proceedings against the officials responsible, and set out additional measures aimed at ensuring law and order in the institutions, identifying in time and preventing negative elements and conflict situations among the prisoners.
