Vladimir Kara-Murza was transferred to the prison hospital from solitary confinement


Political prisoner Vladimir Kara-Murza was transferred to the prison hospital from solitary confinement, but his lawyers are not allowed to see him.


The lawyers are concerned that they haven't been able to see their client for two days already. On 4 July, they were not allowed into the Omsk penal colony-6, where Kara-Murza was held, and they waited for five hours at the gates of the colony. On 5 July they were denied access to the prison hospital, where, according to their information, Kara-Murza was transferred.


Kara-Murza, who is serving a 25-year sentence, is regularly fined and spends most of his time in solitary confinement. His health, which requires special monitoring after two poisonings, is under constant scrutiny by his lawyers.
