The Deputy Minister of justice Denis Chernyshov said that the searches in the Odessa prison, where the prisoner previously killed the employee of the establishment, was planned. He stated this during a press conference, reports UKRINFORM.
Chernyshev said that the order for the searches was signed on 9 August 2017.
“A few times a year, conducted a special operation before the big holidays, when everyone leaves for the holidays. They are subject to regular searches and special operations. When it is needed, by special force units. This year on August 9th, I signed a decree on holding such events before the holidays for Independence Day. We can say that this is a coincidence. It is clear that if they were not planned, we once again held them or held outside the plan,” said Chernyshev.
