Several prison cameras not working on day of Navalny’s death, says human rights group


On the day of Alexey Navalny’s death, several cameras in the prison colony where he was being held were not operating says, a human rights group that focuses on the rights of prisoners in Russia.

Their claim is based on a report which was attached to an official inspection of the Federal Penitentiary Service of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. According to the source, two days before Navalny’s death, FSB officers came to the colony, which, as suggests, disconnected and dismantled listening devices and hidden cameras “that could have recorded what happened to Alexey Navalny on February 15-16.”

Additionally, they claim that on the evening of February 16, the expert conducting the autopsy was verbally instructed to describe the bruises on Alexey Navalny’s body as having occurred after death.

As of now, no other sources have confirmed’s claims.
