The exact location and name of the penal colony were not disclosed, but Alexander Kalashnikov of the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) told reporters: “According to the court’s decision, he left where he should go now. Everything is in place. Completed within the framework of the court. Laws and current laws.”
Kalashnikov added that Navani will be kept under “absolutely normal conditions.”
Navani’s lawyer told CNN on Thursday that he had moved from the Matrosskaya Tishina detention center in Moscow, but did not provide Navani’s team or his family with detailed information about where he was transferred.
Marina Litvinovich of the Moscow Public Surveillance Committee (ONK) observes the treatment of prisoners and told CNN that Navani will be sent to the criminal colony of the “general regime”, which is the most common in Russia Prison.
Litvinovic said that prisoners are usually not kept in cells, but sleep in dormitories, divided into groups. She added that if the prisoners wanted, they could work.
Russian authorities classify Navani as a flying danger-human rights activists laugh at him for this characteristic-so Litvinovich said he may be subject to special supervision or search.
