CORROSION OF THE RUSSIAN JUSTICE
President of Russia
Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation
Chairman of the Investigating Committee of Russia
Minister of the Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation
We, citizens of Russia of
different nationalities, religions, professions and beliefs, appeal to you
through this petition because we have already exhausted all the possible normal
lawful means to fight for justice.
Although our backgrounds differ, we share common distress and goals, and
together we seek truth and safety for our loved ones and for all citizens of
As law-abiding citizens of this
nation, we are appalled by what we have come to see with our own eyes is a
corrupt and unjust system of law enforcement and judicial proceedings. And then to find our imprisoned sons, sisters
and husbands facing indecent and inhumane treatment at the hands of the prison
system is more than we can bare. Is this
what we deserve as productive, tax-paying citizens? Where once we respected police for being
brave protectors, we now have discovered they too are corrupted by prosecutors
who care not for facts or evidence, but for quick convictions that will boost
their own selfish ends. Where, we ask,
is conscience? Has everyone in our
system of law traded integrity, honor and righteousness for corruption, greed
Investigators get awards and career
advancement on bringing criminal cases based on planted or concealed evidence,
while they are too inept or lazy to actually pursue the truth, allowing the
guilty to roam free and continue their unlawful deeds. The prosecutor doesn’t question anything that
supports their case; more likely, they encourage any supporting evidence, real
or otherwise, to bring about their idea of “swift justice”.
And even judges, it
seems, have not the resolve to determine the value of prosecutorial evidence
presented, or consider all evidence of the defense (if they, themselves are not
likewise corrupted) but instead lean in favor of the prosecution. But, of course, although a judge holds the
gravest of powers to control the fate of citizens, they, themselves, are exempt
from liability for the decisions they render.
Of all officials in the justice system, the judge is the most powerful,
yet the least accountable for their decisions.
After all, to hold a judge accountable would reflect badly upon the
official who appointed them, would it not?
Perhaps the time has come for this most important office to be an
elected position, voted upon by the citizenry of this democratic nation.
When the Attorney
General admits that 30% of our imprisoned population are innocent of the crimes
for which they were imprisoned, should we not expect our government to show
concern and mandate institutional change?
Yet, such a statistic does not seem to be of any great concern. Are they so brazen and detached from morality
that such a fact does not keep them awake at night? The evidence of inaction suggests so. While we acknowledge a decree by the
president to crack down on bribery within the justice system, bribery is but a
single symptom of a system of a thousand ills.
Falsification of evidentiary documents, imprudent utilization of
existing evidence, outright provocations against seekers of truth, are all
routine procedures. Routine also are the
inhumane, unlawful use of electroshock, beatings, rapes and other tortures to
As citizens of
Russia, we are better than that, and we expect and demand better from our
government. We must, once and for all,
break the circle of corruption that, left unchecked, only strengthens and
becomes more menacing with the passage of time.
Isn't it time to put an end to
the outrages in the law-enforcement and judicial systems?
who and in what words should the Russians appeal for compliance with laws and
their constitutional rights for freedom and justice?
We demand the criminal
lawlessness of fabrication of criminal cases and tortures be investigated:

This could be the way of
purging the law-enforcement ranks of the vermin dishonoring Russia and
undermining the state foundations from within.
The list of fabricated cases includes only a few names of the Russian
justice victims because most people fear to publish their names for the
pressure exerted upon them. Innocent people are sentenced to long terms of imprisonment,
