Victims of "Pravieniškės mafija" have revealed details about the rules of horror and unwritten



For more than five years Pravieniškės Correctional House has criminal unification, at least as indicated by law enforcement material. The Vilnius District Court was quoted on Thursday by a convict from the Mafia Prison.

As he said, he had suffered not only violence and extortion, but also other prisoners.

"I even heard that an inmate was beaten so he died later, and from the others he was fighting over, carrots were put into donkeys. From other inmates, I heard about that," – said the person convicted.

Danger from witnesses

The life of a witness from a prisoner is incomprehensible. "I did not work in freedom, I committed a crime, I stole it," he said, adding that Correction Pravienišk found himself at risk of robbery.

He was interviewed remotely, because today he is being held in the Lukišk Prison Detention Center, where he was severely beaten by bodily injury. "I drank the man. I took it and cut it," where he received a three-year prison sentence, clearly the person who was sentenced.

Simon Slapšinskas, a lawyer representing Aidas Kupčiūnas, called "Pravieniškės Mafija" wadeiva, was immediately questioned by the witness's testimony.

One detail about the victim's testimony is in fact doubtful – he denied part of his testimony to officials in his pre-trial investigation in the courtroom. When the next reminder of what was said earlier, the convict broke away without saying it and could not say that Ernest Rimsel, who headed the panel of judges, wondered if he had not read the census.

"I did not see it, I only gave testimony," confirmed the convict, and some time later, one of the defendants, Arthur Rachkell, immediately questioned what the officials promised for his testimony.

"Nobody wants to," the convict answered, and asked why he had not read his testimony, adding: I was tired after a full day of voting. "This answer caused a lot of laughter for a large group of defendants.

The first step

As the witness said, arriving at Pravieniškės Correctional House first came to the "quarantine" where a "bugor" – a prisoner who received convicts – met. He listens to the size of the punishment for who, for what, or who will be detained by the prisoner, where he wants to stay. Apparently, at that time Algirdas Daukšas performed the function of "bugor", and was sent to prison for more than thirteen years in prison in 2006.

"Fit explain where he is sitting bachura, kavianski, Portuguese, Klaipeda and so on. He didn't really deal with something, he asked where I wanted to live. I replied, I want the first local person (15 minutes – in the sector where he sits bachura) to live a normal life. I will not have it smell, Rooster. Here is the lowest cast. They were at that time and now there. Daukša proposed to go to the first, "he said.

When the judge wondered what the term was used by him, inmates explained that it was a subcultural caste in prison.

"COCK can't squeeze hands, can't take cigarettes from him, drink tea. The basic rule, if you do it, will go to a rooster. "They washed their toilets and did the most horrible things," explained the inmate. Bachura – the highest prisoners at Pravieniškės Correction House, they are not allied with other inmates, only communicating with themselves. Bachur douche and he eats and cleanses the floor, and does his laundry. "

He added that part bachur have their own personal cigarette smokeprisoners serve themselves. The judge was asked why the latter did not refuse to do degrading work, the convict was angry.

"He could not refuse it because he was physically punished for it bachura they use them. They come in a hurry. I have seen people being beaten because of the fact that cold food does not do the same thing douche beaten, "said the inmate and added it cigarette smoke paid without paying bachur "tax" is needed.

"Vierchai" is superior to administration

In sectors where prisoners really live, the prison administration commission must deal with quarantine. When the convict told him, he asked for a commission to move him to the second sector.

"I realized this at the second local employee, so I wanted to have a quick sentence section. I was told that there was no work," said the convict, who was finally assigned to the first local sector.

When he came to this sector, he quickly learned that when the Pravienišk government pointed to a certain place where the sentenced person must stay, this decision did not really mean anything.

"I was escorted into the first squad and in 15 minutes I was called to the place called room"- said the inmate.

He could not accurately explain what "space" was, but said that there were only 4 inmates living there, when they usually pressed about 20 in one room.

"Kupčiukas meets me and speaks here (15 minutes – Aidas Kupčiūnas), asking who I occupied why no one called, did not warn, – said the prisoner. – I was told that nobody knew about me and the question would be solved. "

As long as the problem is resolved, the man is built "on ski", which means he can stay in the assigned squad.

"Half seven raised me and told me to go to the field with things. I was able to go back to sleep for 23 hours," the prison official, who spent two days in cold weather in February, said he was really cold.

On the third day, the convict is again invited to the "room", where A.Kupčiūnas explains to him without receiving the sentence of call and therefore must pay.

"I already know there is an initial cost of 360 euros. This is what is called" the cost of the part ", he is behind the section, gym, reading room, for repairs," – said the prisoner.

This amount is transferred to the account specified by a friend: "I explained that part for money and he understood."

Another tax, as can be understood from the narrative of the person sentenced, is the individual – that is, "vierchai" has decided its size. For example, one prisoner was given 1.8 thousand. euro tax.

"I was ordered to pay 5 thousand euros, called contribution campbecause nobody knows me. That might be because telling me that my father worked in Norway, my mother in England decided that I could get both, "he said.

After agreeing to pay, inmates from A.Kupčiūnas get an "iPhone" cellphone, he must call his relatives, tell him where he is and ask for money. He was also allowed to jump from skiing and designated residence.

"The administrative commission has decided where to stay, but how the commission decided it was not there," the defendant explained to the judge about this procedure, and when asked why he did not try to explain that he had been assigned, he replied: "I did not try to explain, because I know that I will not explain anything, from other inmates I know from his acquaintances. "

In the last trial, A. Kopčiūnas himself claimed that he was not a "viercha" and defended himself by solving various problems. He assured that all prisoners agreed to do it together.

"Pravieniškės, like elsewhere, have unwritten rules, they were formed during the Soviet occupation. The administration can never independently guarantee discipline," said A.Kupčiūnas, 42. He was in Pravieniškiai for robbery.

How much does a telephone or "grass" cost?

When inmates have been given a place to stay, the next step is to register. Prisoners must provide other prisoners with drugs, alcohol and food.

"I learned from douche about buying drugs, they told me that there were signatures, drinks, smoke medicines from other people, others just ate, "he said.

According to the inmate, he was told that marijuana could be bought from a man, nicknamed Long. Their family name cannot be determined by the convicted person.

"I am in contact with Ilga, I buy grass for 300 euros, and I am told that I have to transfer money in a week," he explained, and asked how drug trafficking in prison works, and said: "As far as I know, I received permission from Aido Kupčiukas arbitrary nobody can sell drugs. There must be an Aido Kupchuk edition. "

According to him, he received 10 units worth 300 euros. One unit costs EUR 30, according to inmates, there are around 0.3 or 0.5 g marijuana. "Not visible," the inmate asked when he determined the number. For free, grams of "grass" cost around 10 euros.

Then, for 100 euros, another prisoner bought a telephone. "The telephone, if it's smart, with the internet, costs 150 euros," the inmate said.

Start beating

As a convict, he was reminded, after two weeks A. Kopčiūnas called him to the basin, where another prisoner – Erlandas Palukaitis was waiting for him.

"The rain hits, the questions where the money is, why you don't give up money. After that I don't know the whole face, the body is blue. The beat lasts 10-20 minutes, he remembers. – Then it says, take a shower, change it because I bleed and bleed. "

Asked why he did not seek medical advice or the prison administration, inmates gave a simple motive – fear: "I fear punishment is even more severe if I complain."

After a few weeks, there was a second attack, as said prisoners were punished, both attackers hit at least 10 punches, both hands and feet.

"I knocked three times. The last beating – the day before A. Kupchyun's automatic release. During the last rush he said: don't forget what to do, he remembered." One day I did not know when the prisoners would eat dinner, I did not return to the local sector, I go to the distribution site, I say, I will not go further. "

Persecution took place

When he was asked to be transferred, the commission met again and decided the fate of the next person. When the judge wondered why, if he just asked the clerk and moved to another place, he didn't do it before, he explained – not everything was so simple.

"Poor reading out of the sector, therefore education. Automatically goes into the lower box, much lower, bachur no longer ", – he said.

The commission assigned him to the third local sector, because he said, there were many called "elephants", prisoners who did not recognize the rules of the subculture and violated it. According to him, in this sector it is normal to greet and communicate with members of the "chicken" box.

According to him, before being transferred to the prison staff, he told him about extortion and beatings, but they did not take into account the situation and did not take any action.

"When I was transferred, a prisoner called me there, asking what happened, why I was transferred. I explained to him that I was tortured, he asked whether the money was real or hugged. I explained to hug," – he remembered.

However, the life of the convict is not calm. In the third sector, having a playground, twice a week playing soccer came to the first sector "bachura".

"From the first local player to come to play football. Erland came and asked if I had not forgotten anything, I said I did not forget anything. He said he would kick me and give me a bank account where the money was transferred," said the person sentenced and add. – I did not say to the family that I needed money to do everything well, I punished and I would leave immediately. And they ask for money every two, three weeks ago. "

Pravieniškės captain

Among the defendants were not only prisoners, one of whom was the Senior Inspector of the Pravienišk Criminal Intelligence Division's House Correctional Evaldas Baronėnas.
