The adoption of the «law Savchenko» in Ukraine actively lobbied influential criminal groups associated with the Federal security service of Russia, the goal was to spread crime chaos in Ukraine. About it in interview to the edition «GORDON» the head of the prison service in 2014 and head, Lukyanovka jail in 2009-2010, the lawyer Sergey Starenky.
«Someone upstairs (the Ukrainian authorities. – «GORDON») seriously brought. And bribery was influential organized crime groups, which are lobbying their interests in government. The institution of «thieves in law» – very stiff and rich vertical structure. The most authoritative and influential «thieves in law» sitting in Russia controlled by the FSB. The goal is to sow in Ukraine criminal chaos. I may scare you, but I have a professional cynicism,» said the Old man.
He stressed that «the law Savchenko» has led to the opposite result: did not solve the problem of bad conditions in the detention center inmates in respect of whom the court has not yet convicted and released on parole to freedom of repeat offenders.
«I knew from the beginning: «the law Savchenko» will lead to opposite results. Prisoners are not in a hurry to get out of jail, because you know in the case of a guilty verdict one day in jail will count for two, so he will stay behind bars is only half the time even if they get a guilty verdict. And on the effectiveness of the prosecutors «Savchenko’s law» in General is not affected. Cui prodest – look who benefits. And the best «Savchenko’s law» to those who were convicted for grave and especially grave crimes. They went out before all,» said the Old man.
The former head of the prison service insists the problem of delaying the proceedings in court, when a suspect forced to stay in jail for years, you could decide not to separate questionable act, and two amendments to an existing one.
«It was assumed that «the law Savchenko» will solve two serious problems – the inhuman conditions of detention in prison (not changed – both was, and remained) and periods of detention. But to solve these problems did not need a new law, it was enough to make two edits to the current. The first edit is to change the rules on people in jail from 2.5 m2 to 4 m2. It would be automatically forced to improve living conditions in detention facilities. Second edit – severely limit the cases in court. Literally: for the year did not prove guilt in a serious crime or six months is not proved guilty to the misdemeanor immediately release the person from detention under house arrest or under house arrest. But the «law Savchenko» not a problem I wanted to solve, and massively release a large number of prisoners», – concluded the Old.
«In Lukyanovka jail is ruled by thieves and money, and thieves obshchak is about $500 thousand» Full interview with Sergey Starenky
November 26, 2015 the Verkhovna Rada voted for «Savchenko’s law» – the bill «On amendments to the criminal code of Ukraine concerning improvement of the procedure for admission by the court of pre-trial detention period to the sentence,» according to which one day in jail counts as two days of imprisonment on conviction on indictment to the prisoner.
