Poly, Threats and Sack on Head: Lawyer Told Where Iryna Danylovych Had Been since Disappearance

Lawyer Ayder Azamatov told where citizen journalist Iryna Danylovych had been since her disappearance.

According to the lawyer, Ms. Iryna Danylovych had been kept in the basement of FSB building for eight days, subject to polygraph tests, put a sack on her head and threatened that she would be taken out to the forest if she hid something. All this time she was fed once a day, and taken to the toilet twice a day.

At the end of this stay in the FSB Ms. Danylovych was offered to sign some blank forms in exchange for freedom. After she did so, she was told that two hundred grams of explosives had been found in her small bag and then she was moved to court to impose a pre-trial restriction.

To remind: Ms. Iryna Danylovych disappeared on April 29th. The same day her home in the village of Vladyslavivka near Feodosia was searched while she was detained at work. According to the mother, the phone and laptop were seized during the search. The security agents did not leave a copy of the court decision. Her lawyer was informed that Ms.Danylovych was not in the Simferopol Pre-Trial Detention Centre. Only on the thirteenth day after the abduction, a lawyer got a confirmation from the Simferopol Pre-Trial Detention Centre that activist Iryna Danylovych was there.

A criminal case has been opened against Ms. Iryna Danylovych under RF CC Article 222.1-1 (Illegal acquisition, transfer, sale, storage, transportation or translocation of explosives). According to the lawyer, a pre-trial restriction was officially imposed on her only on May 7th, with the involvement of state lawyer (by appointment).
