FSIN: the department is obliged to detain Navalny pending a court decision

The department on Thursday officially commented on the reports that Navalny was put on the wanted list due to the fact that he did not appear for registration as a conditionally convicted person, and confirmed them.

The Office of the Federal Penitentiary Service for Moscow on Thursday said that the department is obliged to take all actions to detain opposition leader Alexei Navalny, whom the Federal Penitentiary Service accuses of violating the rules of the suspended sentence imposed by Navalny in the so-called Yves Rocher case..

The department on Thursday officially commented on reports that Navalny was put on the wanted list due to the fact that he did not appear for registration as a conditionally convicted person, and confirmed them. The FSIN said in a statement that Navalny did not appear for registration six times in the first 8 months of 2020, that is, even before he was sent for treatment to Germany. Also, the FSIN department said that Navalny notified the department on November 23 that he was undergoing rehabilitation in Germany, however, as the message says, the fact of undergoing recovery procedures is not a reason for not showing up for registration. On November 27, search activities began against Navalny, and on December 29 – a day before the expiration of his probationary period – they officially put him on the wanted list..

At the same time, the department announced the alleged violations by Navalny only at the end of December, and the fact that he had been put on the wanted list became known only on January 13 – the day when Navalny announced that he intended to return to Moscow on January 17.

The FSIN report says that the department should make every effort to detain the oppositionist pending trial to replace his suspended sentence with a real one..
