Azat Miftakhov had been moved to the Correctional Colony number 17 in Omutninsk

On August 1, Azat Miftakhov had been moved from SIZO in Kirov to the Correctional Colony number 17 in Omutninsk in Kirov Province.  This colony is known for mistreatment and torture of prisoners by the authorities, brutal even by the Russian prison system standards. Azat is currently in quarantine there and a local lawyer has been in touch with him. Although Azat has not reported being mistreated, we continue to be gravely concerned about his safety and health. We also continue to call for Azat’s immediate and unconditional release.
