Tatiana Moskalkova restored electoral rights of detainees in the Altai Territory

High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova achieved the restoration of the electoral rights of more than 300 citizens held in the Altai Territory pre-trial detention centers.

On September 7, the Federal Ombudsman received an appeal from a member of the Public Monitoring Commission of the Altai Territory, L., in which he reported that the detention facilities were not ready for elections. All detainees — citizens of the Russian Federation, did not have the opportunity to vote, because the penitentiary staff did not provide the procedure of issuing passports.

In addition, citizens did not have information on which polling station they were assigned to, and the Territorial Electoral Commission did not take any actions to implement the electoral rights of citizens.

Having familiarized herself with the materials, Tatiana Moskalkova immediately sent an appeals to the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Altai Territory and to Commissioner for Human Rights in the Altai Territory Boris Larin.

According to the response received from the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Altai Territory, on September 10, voting in elections was organized by delivery of ballot boxes to all pretrial detention centres of the region.

Commissioner for Human Rights in the Altai Territory Boris Larin, verified the organization of voting in pretrial detention centre No. 1 in the presence of the applicant, members of the PMC, observers from candidates and political parties.

"As the High Commissioner for Human Rights, it is important for me that the rights of voters and candidates for elective offices are fully realized, and possible violations of electoral rights are timely suppressed," said Tatiana Moskalkova.
