At 5:00 p.m., on December 6, police detained Alyona Romanova near her home. They have charged her with misdemeanors. Allegedly, Alyona did not carry out the police’s orders and did not obey their instructions to get in their car. Alyona is currently in the 59th police precinct station at 27 Yesenin Street.
The desk sergeant’s telephone is +7 (812) 517 5902.
If you can, please call the desk sergeant and ask how she is feeling.
I was at the precinct an hour ago. I brought her warm clothes and food. She has been put in solitary confinement. There is nothing in her cell: no blanket or pillow. We were not allowed to see each other. She is quite upset, of course.
This is a new tactic on the part of the police. Apparently, as the year comes to an end, they have to turn in reports and fill their quotas of closed cases. So they have already cobbled together one case.
There will be a court hearing on December 7. It might take place at the Vyborg District Court at 3 Santiago de Cuba Street.
I don’t know exactly what time it will take place. The lawyer said that will be decided at nine or ten in the morning.
