Accused person released on bail

14 December 2016

With assistance of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, violations of rights and freedoms of a Novosibirsk resident committed during criminal investigation have been eliminated.

The High Commissioner received a complaint from Ms K., whose father was accused of a crime. The complainant alleged that during the investigation her father was detained illegally. Her attempts to appeal the initial court decision were unsuccessful.

Having considered the complaint, the High Commissioner petitioned the Novosibirsk Prosecutor’s Office to conduct an inspection related to the complaint.

Based on a request of the regional Prosecutor’s Office, the Novosibirsk Regional Court reversed the ruling of the Novosibirsk district court and changed the preventive measure.

Therefore, with assistance of the High Commissioner the violations of the criminal procedural law have been eliminated. The citizen was released on bail until preliminary investigation is completed.
